The SSD is a designated advocacy group through the University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS). The other advocacy organizations present in the UVSS are The Gender Empowerment Centre, Native Students Union, Students of Colour Collective, and UVic Pride.

We receive funding from both undergraduate and graduate student fees; these fees go towards paying our staff, providing programming, direct funding opportunities, and other resources to support self-identified Disabled students at the University of Victoria.
