Visible / Invisible Disabilities

Equality is the public recognition, effectively expressed in institutions and manners, of the principle that an equal degree of attention is due to the needs of all human beings.” Simone Weil

This Community is designed to create supplemental awareness and support for the specific individual needs of its members. The objective of this community is to establish a strong network of individuals to bolster up its members as they strive to achieve their personal, academic and professional goals. Some of the resources shared within this platform will have an educational value, whereas other resources serve to support the ways in which success can be achieved in meeting the various challenges head-on.

This community network may consist of other students, staff and faculty members, mentors, alums and other community constituents who are looking to assist in navigating you on the road to success. Drew University’s Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) is the sole resource for Drew students requesting accommodations in and out of the classroom. All requests of this nature will strictly be addressed through the OAR office. The Director of Accessibility Resources will guide the Launch team in expanding their internal and external resources in order to create an immersive experience for individuals within this community. These resources include assistance in student employment, career development, student leadership, study abroad, and community engagement opportunities.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences and suggest resources to community leaders, in supporting students’ pathways to development.
