Accessibility Advocates

Accessibility advocates are students familiar with the Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) and who serve as an additional resource for their peers with disabilities. Accessibility Advocates can assist students with the following:

  • Help connecting with the OAS
    • Who to contact
    • Navigating the accommodations request process
    • How to use the test center
  • Practical problem solving
    • Emailing specific staff with issues
    • Emailing or meeting with professors
    • Schedule planning
  • Learning how to advocate for yourself
    • Explaining disability
    • How to give professors letters of disabilities
    • Making needs clear
    • Understanding professors expectations (e.g. student will email when misses class)

To schedule a meet-up with an Accessibility Advocate, email accessibilityadvocates@geneseo.edu
