A research team from the Disability Studies Program, The D Center, and the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is looking for volunteers to participate in a series of research focus groups and/or interviews to help co-create a disability allyship training curriculum. This project is funded by the UW CLIME competitive small grants program.
They are recruiting UW students, staff, and faculty who have a disability, physical or mental health condition, a chronic illness, or are d/Deaf to contribute to a research project on disability, equity, and inclusion on the UW campus. The team is still recruiting individuals who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
You may be eligible, if you:
- Are 18 years or older
- Are a student, staff, or faculty member who attend or work at UW at least part-time.
- Identify as having a disability, physical or mental health condition, chronic illness, or are d/Deaf.
- Identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color (BIPOC)
If you decide to participate in the study, you will be asked to be part of a 60-90-minute virtual focus group with your fellow students, staff, or faculty members. You can also request to complete an individual virtual interview. Each participant will receive a $30 electronic gift card after completing the focus group/interview.
If you are interested in participating in the study or have any questions, please contact our research team at email@example.com or visit their website to meet the research team and learn more.
They are interested in learning :
- how you perceive your academic and/or healthcare experiences, considering campus attitudes and the social or physical environment
- how you experience ableism or discrimination on UW campus
- how you experience allyship, advocacy, and community at UW.
All study information will be kept confidential. Captioning and ASL interpretation can be provided. Additional accessibility needs will be solicited upon participant confirmation.
