Services for Students with Disabilities

Allies for Disability Awareness Community Organizing (ADACO)

This organization works to develop an effective network of student organizations. In establishing this network, we hope to increase the visibility of students with disabilities, highlight the unique skill sets, abilities, and wealth of knowledge that students with disabilities bring to the classroom and to campus, and advocate for the fair treatment of said students at the University of Michigan. To join contact: Adena Rottenstein, adena@umich.edu.

Growing Allies

Growing Allies strives to build a community of social justice allies to create a safe and inclusive environment at the University of Michigan and beyond. Growing Allies envisions a community where allies work together and support each other. Each semester, we put on a variety of programs, including a weekend retreat. Some of other programs include informal community events, professional development training for University staff, workshops, co-sponsorships/mini-grants, presentations at professional and community conferences, and more. Contact: growingallies@umich.edu.

Michigan Sign Club

The mission of Michigan Sign Club is to promote awareness of American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf Culture on campus and in the community. We provide our members with an outlet to learn, use, and practice ASL and meet other people who want to do the same. With Michigan Sign Club, Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Hearing people can come together, share experiences, make friends, and enjoy a club dedicated to this beautiful language!
