UQU Abilities Collective
WHAT IS THE ABILITIES COLLECTIVE?
The UQU Abilities Collective, provided by UQU, your student union, is a group for UQ students who identify as having a disability, chronic illness, or mental illness. The Collective provides peer support and assistance during university through fostering a positive, open, and caring community. We run informal networking events, organised events and meetings as well as the Abilities Room - a safe space.
Another role of the Collective is to raise awareness of issues surrounding disability on campus and in the wider community. We do this by running awareness events, campaigns, and fundraisers throughout the semester, as well as advocating for the rights of students with disabilities to the University.
Check out how to get involved as a member, or by coming to our public events, below!
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
All students and alumnus of UQ who identify as having a disability, chronic illness or mental health condition can be members of the UQU Abilities Collective.
The group is a safe and supportive space to discuss concerns and ideas, share knowledge about how to get help on campus when facing difficulties, as well as a place to forge new friendships.
All meeting times and events can also be found in the online group.
