Any University of Oxford student who identifies with the demographic of this Campaign is free to join. This gives you the right to vote in the Campaign's Elections.
Chair of DisCam Tiri Hughes talks about all things Disability at Oxford, as a guest on Oxford From The Inside.
Cramming what could easily have been a week’s worth of speeches, panels, policy debates, reports and elections into a two-day conference definitely had the potential to turn into chaos, but the 2019 NUS Disabled Students’ Conference was anything but.
As a campaign, our core aims are:
By 'disabled students', we mean anyone who identifies as having a disability, whether this is officially recognised or not. This includes physical, sensory, cognitive, mental and developmental disabilities. This also encompasses those with chronic illnesses, learning difficulties, and mental health conditions.
The Disabilities Campaign is a place for support and everyone will be welcomed. If you are having any difficulties, please get in touch. Our committee consists of friendly individuals and we been through our fair share of issues with the Oxford system - we’ll do our best to help point you in the right direction.
