The Carleton Disability Awareness Center (CDAC) provides the Carleton community with social supports regarding disability and accessibility. CDAC is designed to act as a forum for disability issues and to provide advocacy and events. The CDAC staff aims to foster social opportunities and to involve the CUSA membership in disability education and inclusion. They endeavour to challenge the stereotypes about disability and assist in the removal of barriers to every aspect of university life. CDAC achieves this through a wide range of programming for students that are both fun and informative.
Since its founding in 1988, CDAC has become one of the leading disability awareness centers in the country and has been at the forefront of advocacy at the student level. Whether it be in policy through the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), or our Disability Awareness Weeks, we have always been proud of our ability to promote effective change within the Carleton community.
