Post Secondary Disability Consortium
of Central New York (PDCCNY)

The Post-Secondary Disability Consortium of Central New York is an organization of post-secondary service providers committed to enhancing campus access for students with disabilities. The collective goals of this group are to share ideas and information, to promote further understanding and equity relative to disability issues, and to plan and implement strategies that will encourage policy changes and outcomes for the post-secondary students that we serve.

OUR OBJECTIVES

  1. To develop communication, cooperation, and coordination on issues relating to post-secondary students with disabilities.
  2. To encourage further public awareness of the needs and issues of students with disabilities.
  3. To support service providers in balancing academic standards and academic and vocational accommodations.
  4. To work as a group to promote institutional, interagency, and statewide initiatives to meet the educational needs of students with disabilities.
  5. To form a working relationship with secondary schools, transition teams, and employers to encourage appropriate transition to and from post-secondary education.
  6. To provide professional development for consortium members and other professionals working with this population.
  7. To consider issues of policy which impact access and opportunity in higher education for students with disabilities.
  8. To promote systemic data collection, to gather applicable information from service providers, and to enhance knowledge and awareness of factors related to educational and vocational outcomes.
