The OSWD Student Advisory Board ("SAB") is a small body of OSWD students who address student concerns about accessibility on the Gallaudet campus. The SAB meets once per month to discuss issues related to accessibility, disability awareness, and potential violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.. The SAB serves in an advisory capacity, making recommendations to OSWD, and through them, to the campus community and leadership. Watch the video below to learn more.
OSWD staff select members based on an applicant's qualifications and evidence that the applicant is willing and able to comply with the principles and responsibilities of the SAB. A maximum of seven members constitute the SAB at any time, chosen to represent a cross-section of disabilities.
Please fill out the online "OSWD Student Advisory Board (SAB) Application" and submit it for consideration.
