IFO Disabilities Advocacy Committee
The Disabilities Advocacy Committee (DAC) was created to address issues faced by faculty with disabilities. The committee provides information and advocacy to faculty, especially with regard to the process of making requests for reasonable accommodation.
It is imperative that faculty challenge systemic oppression to empower marginalized members through innovative and intentional equity and inclusion initiatives. Faculty must be empowered to lead efforts to foster learning communities that respect the inherent worth of all students, faculty, and staff based on values of justice, inclusion, and equity. We strive for equity within our union to build solidarity, and ensure that our collective voice is an inclusive voice.
