Disability Community Affinity Space

The PCDI Student Advisory Committee's (SAC) mission is to amplify the voices of UMD students with disabilities and their advocates, and to create a platform for those people to form bonds and propose change.

PCDI SAC will host bi-weekly Student Disability Community Affinity Spaces in Fall 2021. If you identify as part of the Disability community, please come join us! These meetings will provide an opportunity for us to connect, socialize, and support each other (including by sharing resources).

Email pcdi-sac@umd.edu if you are interested in joining and you will be invited to the next meeting! Please share the PCDI SAC PDF Flyer with students who you think may be interested in joining!
