Disability Rights, Education, Activism, and Mentoring (DREAM)

DREAM (Disability Rights, Education Activism, and Mentoring) is a national organization for and by college students with disabilities.  Our work is supported by our sponsoring organization, the National Center for College Students with Disabilities (NCCSD), which is based at the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD).

DREAM is open to higher education students of all types, including graduate students, part-time students, and those who are auditing higher education courses.  It is open to students of all ages with any kind of disability, culturally Deaf students, and nondisabled students who are our allies and peers.  We explicitly include people who have traditionally been marginalized or under-represented in the disability or higher education communities.

We strongly advocate for disability culture, community, and pride, and hope to serve as an online virtual disability cultural center for students who want to connect with other students.
