Disabled Students Voices will be heard through Central Disabled Students Structure
Disabled students from Edgewood, Westville, Howard and Pietermaritzburg campuses recently converged on the Edgewood campus to deliberate on the need to speak with one voice at UKZN.
The establishment of the Central Disabled Students Committee was given momentum with support from the Disability Support Unit staff. The Executive Director of Student Services, Dr Sibusiso Chalufu, met with representatives of disabled students in 2012 on the Howard College campus and mooted that idea of a strong disabled student voice.
The latter came to fruition in 2014 and will serve as an advocacy and lobby to equalise opportunities for students with disabilities as well as create greater awareness in the University community.
