Disability Pride + Visibility

Disability is a core identity for the lives of many. It is vital that students with disabilities at Stanford have a space where they can comfortably express themselves and establish a community. We hope that this space is able to nurture and empower that community.

The Space

Know Before You Go to DisCo!  The DisCo Space is a space in which students with disabilities and their allies can meet to pursue leadership development opportunities, academic/intellectual programming, and activities targeted for community building and wellbeing. At the DisCo Space, students can comfortably express themselves and establish a community; thus empowering them to succeed academically, personally, and professionally.

The Community

Our community encompasses a broad range of individuals and conditions. It is essential that we embrace and acknowledge these differences to accommodate and support those with disabilities within Stanford's larger diverse communities.
