Accessibility Dialogues are discussions in an informal but private virtual setting, focused on topics relevant to students registered with Accessibility Services. Share your experiences and connect with others who are navigating accommodations and disability at U of T.
Some Accessibility Dialogues are geared towards specific populations, e.g. BIPOC students, 2SLGBTQ+ students, graduate students. Please read descriptions before registering.
Accessibility Dialogues are facilitated by peer facilitators from Accessibility Services along with special guests, including accessibility advisors, peers registered with Accessibility Services, or staff and faculty from across U of T.
Summer 2022 Accessibility Dialogues

Undergraduate and graduate students registered with Accessibility Services or who self-identify as having a disability.
How The Program Works
Navigating U of T as a 2SLGBTQ+ Student with a Disability
Accessibility Services is offering an informal space for students to find community, be yourself and connect with other students registered with Accessibility Services!
For students with a disability or disabilities, navigating U of T can sometimes be complex, layered and overwhelming. This is a shared experience for many students on campus. In this Accessibility Dialogue, connect with other students who may have similar lived experiences. Through facilitated discussion, the goal of this dialogue is to allow space for 2SLGBTQ+ students with disabilities to explore and reflect on how the intersectionality and complexity of our identities shape the way we navigate the University.
Dialogues for BIPOC Students Living with a Disability
Dialogues for BIPOC Students with a Disability provide an informal opportunity for Black and Indigenous students and students of colour to discuss topics relevant to their disability and/or identity.
This group is open to any BIPOC student who is currently registered with Accessibility Services and will be facilitated by Accessibility Services staff, students and interns with lived experience.
Dialogues will consist of conversation and informal questions led by the facilitators and opportunities for attendees to build community and connect with one another.
