Campus Disability Advocates is a student organization at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville that seeks to educate the campus about disability issues, advocate on behalf of people with disabilities, and promote equal respect. Founded in Spring 2012, CDA in its first year held a week long event of disability programming aimed at students and the city which included a forum, a movie screening, an art show, a portrait display of individuals with disabilities on campus, and a conference featuring speakers from around the nation. The group has also worked with UT’s Facilities Services to improve accessibility on campus. Campus Disability Advocates’ member base and support continues to grow as the group makes a larger impact on campus every semester.
Membership is open to all students, with or without disabilities. Meetings are every Tuesday at 7:15 in the Humanities and Social Sciences building on campus, room 58.
