RyeACCESS recognizes that students with disabilities have a diverse range of experiences both on and off campus. However, one experience that is consistent is that of disempowerment.
As students with disabilities it is our time to reclaim our bodies and minds, take control of the services we use, and work with our allies to achieve the freedom and autonomy we deserve. This freedom comes in multiple forms including: professors and staff working with us to find creative solutions; the ability to physically access every building, classroom and office on campus; knowing that when you are experiencing a crisis that people will be there to support you in the ways you need – rather than forcing treatment; full choice and self-direction of support services such as attendants, interpreters, and interveners; and much more.
RyeACCESS works to reclaim our bodies and minds through advocacy, campaigns, outreach, education, and events. We focus on both systemic and individual issues in an effort to create an equitable environment and promote the empowerment, autonomy and freedom of students with disabilities.
