Buckeyes for Accessibility
B4A's vision is to create a diverse community at Ohio State that understands that disability culture goes beyond the scope of traditional medical or social models and pushes the greater Ohio State community to become a more accessible and inclusive space. It is a space where people with or without disability can come together and freely discuss experiences with disability, find resources and build community.
The Ohio State University student chapter furthers the mission of Autism Speaks by engaging the campus community (faculty, staff and students) through education, awareness, friendship and fundraising in positively affecting the lives of those with autism spectrum disorders.
The Disability Studies Graduate Student Association serves graduate students who are completing the interdisciplinary specialization in disability studies or who are interested in learning more about it, and about disability studies at the university. The association provides opportunities for students to network with each other and learn about the ways that disability studies intersects with other academic disciplines.
