The Society for Students with a Disability (SSD) is a student advocacy group that promotes the full participation and inclusion of students who self-identify as having one or more disabilities at the University of Victoria. The SSD provides a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for all students identified with disabilities. The SSD aims to support students who self-identify as having one or more disabilities; particularly, we support students in reducing barriers in their social and emotional domains of student life.
As of COVID-19, we provide online and distanced supports for our members, such as online crafting afternoons, bimonthly foodbox delivery, and a social platform to engage with other members. If you’re interested in joining our community or finding out more about our social programs, check out our programs here.
