About Us

The SSD is an advocacy group through the University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS). 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 other distanced-resources, such as weekly online crafting afternoons, biweekly foodbox delivery, workshops and events, and social platforms to engage with other members. If you’re interested in joining our community or finding out more about our social programs, email us at uvicssd@uvic.ca or join our Slack channel at uvicssd.slack.com.

SSD Council

How we’re organized

The SSD runs on a volunteer, student-run Council that is comprised of the following:

  • Chairperson
  • UVSS Constituency Representative
  • Treasurer
  • Student Liaison
  • International Students’ Representative
  • Graduate Students’ Representative, and
  • six (6) General Members at Large

Unless a position becomes or remains vacant, and at every Annual General Meeting (the month of February), each all Council positions are available for self-identified Disabled students at the University of Victoria to run for.

If you’re interested in learning more about each of the positions, see our Constitution.
