What It’s Like: An opportunity to share your perspectives on living with a disability
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 email@example.com with answers to the above questions or to set up a short interview.
