Disability+ Faculty & Staff Affinity Group

Our Mission

The mission of the Disability+ Faculty & Staff Affinity Group (D+ FSA) is to create spaces for disability and neurodivergence culture to thrive at American University. As disabled/neurodivergent/autistic/blind/mad/chronically ill faculty and staff, we unite to foster community and celebrate our differences.

We envision a campus where disabled and neurodivergent faculty and staff are fully included and welcomed in our campus culture and communities. Centering the voices of those with lived experience, we seek to educate, advocate, and contribute to a better AU.

Our affinity group is anti-racist, anti-colonial, and feminist and welcomes all who want to learn more about disability and neurodivergence. While our founding members identify as disabled/neurodivergent/chronically ill, anyone is welcome to learn more about disability justice, mad pride, and neurodivergence.
