Trinity Ability Co-op
The Trinity Ability Co-op is a collaborative initiative between students, staff, and other stakeholders. The Co-op provides opportunities for members to work together towards inclusion in Trinity. For more information visit the Ability Co-op webpage.
What kind of projects is the Co-op working on?
The Ability Co-Op is student-led, and all projects and activities are proposed and mutually agreed by its members. From media campaigns to creative workshops, we can all contribute and work together towards enhancing inclusion in Trinity. Our projects for this year include:
- Creating a clear and accepted identity for disability support in Trinity.
- Ensuring that students have a say in what the disAbility Hub will do and how it will function.
- Creating Media content to give students with disabilities a platform to share their stories.
- Opening space to the disability community for out-of-hours use e.g. Autism social groups, and disabled activist meeting spaces.
- Improving the Assistive Technology spaces in Libraries.
- Ensuring that room spaces remain student-centered.
Why should I get involved?
Members of the Co-op have the opportunity to ensure that their voices are heard, and they can take ownership of inclusive practice across the Trinity community. The Co-op is also a great platform for developing skills and gathering experience that is beneficial for personal and academic development, as well as future employability. Participating in the Co-op provides opportunities for individuals to develop in areas such as communication, teamwork, networking, and leadership. Not only is participating in the Co-op beneficial for the development of personal skills, graduate attributes, and career readiness, but it’s also a great opportunity to contribute to Civic Engagement in Trinity. This enhances eligibility for accolades such as the Dean of Students Leadership Award.
