DEE has partnered with several colleges to develop groups and/or work with the Student Governments on campus to bring disability pride to their school.

Each campus is different, but we have noticed a few things that have led to the greatest success:

Find a champion: Look for staff or faculty that believe in the mission and have a great relationship with the rest of the campus.  They will help to keep the group going and make the right connections with other staff on campus.

Connect to student government: Student governments typically have some funding for approved groups to form, and support these groups on campus.  

Create a calendar of events: It is so important to share your message in lots of different ways.  Keep the momentum going by making sure you set up several things throughout the year
