What It’s Like: An opportunity to share your perspectives on living with a disability

Posted by Accessibility Advisory Committee on November 9, 2022 in Community Highlights

December 3 is International Day of People with Disabilities. In advance of the day, Dalhousie plans to host a series of events and initiatives during its first annual Accessibility Week, including What It’s Like  — a web series where we showcase stories of lived experience from our campus community. (You can find entries here, updated daily).

Volunteers are invited to answer a few questions (see below) and share via email — or, if preferred, can answer these in a short interview by phone or Teams if time allows. Stories will then be shared on Today@Dal periodically as we receive them.

Volunteers may choose to share their names or remain anonymous (Note: names will be visible to individuals receiving submissions by email or conducting interviews).

Our questions for you:

  • Tell us a little about yourself and your role here at Dal. (Note: If remaining anonymous, this prompt can be skipped — or, simply share as much detail as you feel comfortable doing).

  • What do you wish people knew about your disability?

  • What accessibility changes would have the biggest impact on your experience here at Dal?

If you’re interested in sharing your experiences navigating university life with a visible or invisible disability, please contact us at with answers to the above questions or to set up a short interview.
