The Disability Ambassadors are a diverse group of students working to promote accessibility, inclusivity, and empowerment of disability identity. The group promotes disability as a valued aspect of diversity through student-led education and outreach efforts.
Ambassadors will develop communication, presentation, public-speaking, networking, and leadership skills. Ambassadors develop knowledge and experiences which will be beneficial for personal growth and their journey at UF.

Ambassadors will participate in monthly leadership and training opportunities, which will be hosted on topics such as understanding the Social Justice Model of Disability, Disability as an aspect of Diversity, and Confronting Ableism on Campus. Ambassadors will also create and lead accessibility focused programming each semester which aims to educate the campus community on topics such as disability identity and accessibility.

We are looking for students who want to create positive campus change, who have a positive attitude, motivation, and enthusiasm!
Disability Ambassadors Spring 2022 applications will be opening on December 17 and closing on January 23. Selection emails will be sent out the week of January 24.
