Disabled Staff & Faculty Coalition



The Disabled Staff and Faculty Coalition* is an affinity group that creates community for all disabled staff and faculty at the University of Arizona by holding events, meetups, and social activities on campus throughout the year. We provide a unified voice for disabled faculty and staff in order to:​

Create opportunities for disabled faculty and staff to gather with peers, have a place where disability is not the “other”, and create a community of connection and belonging​

  • Promote an environment of access, inclusion, and equity for all disabled populations of faculty, staff, and visitors​
  • Provide models of access, advocacy, and inclusion for disabled students
  • Increasing understanding of disability culture and communities and their significance


*Our coalition is a space for all disabled staff and faculty, this includes D/deaf, neurodivergent, chronically ill individuals; those with sensory, psychiatric, cognitive, intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities; and those seeking mental health care and support. You do not need to be registered with DRC or have medical documentation to join.
