Originally when I posted this site it was originally planned to be the spring-board for CityTech’s disabled. It’s now become very though clear where CUDALs will fit if ever in CityTech. So let me explain and then I’ll clear up where I see CUDALs going.
For the latter half of the past year I’ve been an active campus representative, on CCSD (the CUNY Coalition for Students With Disabilities). I was up to Albany at least twice before everything went south representing our interests. I’ve been lobbying our senators, and congressional reps in furtherance of disability representation in higher education with special focus on Learning Disabilities, NeuroCognitive, congenital, and similar developmental disabilities. I even tried to drum up interest in a write-in as senator of accessibilities in the last student election. This year, i officially registered as a candidate with an overwhelming support from many of you. Thank you.
I want to move our progress further. So often we are overlooked and let to fail out of convenience for others. I wish to not just end that trend but to invert it. I want us to have a tendency to be extremely successful and have a trend of others elated to help us do it. I know we aren’t afraid of the work. We are notoriously hard workers , dedicating huge amounts of time and labor into whatever we do, regardless of whether we need to or not. So given the opportunity, given the accessibility, given that others would be as passionate in aiding us I am sure we can build great things and I look forward to it. While no child should be left behind, neither should any adult, that’s the function of post-secondary and higher education. To uplift and make fair (equity) opportunities among young adults and older students.
