Office of Student Accommodations:

 

Statistics have consistently shown that students with disabilities are less likely to attend higher education, particularly graduate and professional education. According to recent studies, only 33% of people with disabilities earn a bachelor's degree or higher and only 19% of people with disabilities are employed. Of those who are employed, few enter the STEM and healthcare fields; only 6.8% of doctoral students studying STEM identified as having a disability and less than 5% of people with disabilities are employed in healthcare fields. The Office of Student Accommodations aims to close this gap by providing accommodations and advocating for students with disabilities to reach their academic pursuits. Your donation would go directly to fund new assistive technology tools to support the next generation of STEM scholars with disabilities.

 

Fundraising Initiatives Below:

 

Healthcare Tools for All - Goal $575

The OSA is seeking funding for healthcare tools for student with sensory impairments. The students need amplified, visual stethoscopes and talking blood pressure monitors to use in their classes and clinical experiences.

 

Inclusive Laboratory Experiences - Goal $3,576

The OSA is seeking funding for laboratory equipment for students who are blind or visually impaired. This will allow for students with visual impairments to conduct and chart measurements independently; this tool can be used for a wide array of laboratory experiments!

 

Making Science Tactile - Goal $1,500

Science education often relies on the use of visual graphics. The OSA is seeking funding for a swell form machine which prints visuals using raised ink so that students with visual impairments can "see" the visual by touch!
