Accessibility Coalition - Students walking around campus

Accessibility Coalition

Accessibility Coalition

The Accessibility Coalition is an inclusive, student-led coalition representing the disability community at Arizona State University. The coalition seeks to raise awareness of the experiences of the disabled community, both visible and invisible. It is the goal of the coalition to advocate against ableism and educate on the stigmas impacting members of the Arizona State University community. 





Upcoming Events

Throughout the academic year, Arizona State University dedicates months and weeks to honoring Sun Devils’ heritage. Accessibility Coalition leads the celebration and recognition of the disabled community for a week in October every year. To learn how you can be involved in planning the celebration of our rich, diverse community of ASU students, connect with our coalition




Club Spotlight

Neurodiverse Devils

Neurodiverse Devils is a club dedicated to celebrating neurodiversity at ASU! We aim to spread awareness, educate others, and create a community where students of all neurotypes can connect and support one another in a fun, accepting environment.

Neurodiversity is the recognition, inclusion, and acceptance of neurodivergent conditions, including ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Tourette Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, and more. Whether you are neurodivergent and would like to connect with other neurodivergent students, are looking to learn more about neurodiversity, or are hoping to help spread awareness on campus and beyond, anyone is welcome to join!

Neurodiverse Devils hosts bimonthly meetings and frequent fun events such as movie nights, study sessions, game nights, and more. If you are interested in joining, join our Discord server or send us an email!

Terri Hlava

Terri Hlava
SST Justice and Social Inquiry


My name is Dr. Terri Hlava. My working service dog Copper and I are members of ASU’s Disabilities Studies Advisory Committee and instructors in the School of Social Transformation where we teach Disability Studies, Justice Studies, and a course about the Human-Animal Bond. We love supporting academic and social skills among pre-emergent bilingual students and students with and without this-abilities. Shay, my other working service dog, and I work together in Title I elementary schools where students teach her the same skills that they are learning! We really love our work – it’s kids and dogs, and adults and dogs. We also co-founded the non-profit Human Animal Bond In Teaching And Therapies (H.A.B.I.T.A.T.). This work nourishes our souls, and my teammates and I have been in the field for nearly 30 years, so if ever you have questions about research or the Disabilities Studies Certificate, or want to hear a great dog story, just reach out – we’re always happy to share.
