Affinity Space for UMD Employees with Disabilities

This affinity space is for all grad students, postdocs, staff, faculty, or other UMD employees who identify as disabled or neurodivergent in any way. If you would like to seek support, share resources, or attend meetups and events, please join this Whatsapp group.

If you don't have Whatsapp, you need a smartphone and a phone number to download the app and make an account, but then the application can be used on the web or desktop.

All disability identities are welcome, all disclosures are voluntary, and if there's anything we can do to make the space more accessible to you please just let us know. 

Questions? Please contact Lasair ni Chochlain (she/they) at
