Different Abilities

The goal of this community or “rope team is to give you access to meaningful connections, opportunities, resources and experiences that help you navigate obstacles that may arise along your personal and professional journey. It is designed to support diverse members of non-majority groups who encounter unique challenges throughout their personal, social, academic and professional development. This community recognizes, appreciates, celebrates, promotes, and supports each individual because of their diversity and contributions. We call them “rope teams” because these communities, as many as you are interested in accessing, are here to support your student and alum journey as well as to provide you with an opportunity to support the journey of those you want to help succeed.
