What is ACE ?
The Accessibility Community Equity committee is comprised of students, many of whom are affiliated with the Faculty of Environmental Studies, who organize around issues of equity. We have organized workshops, seminars and peer mentorship sessions, all geared at offering students some of the necessary social and emotional supports needed for their success. One of our most important feats was our role in ensuring that all incoming graduate students at FES,irrespective of academic background, were offered funding packages. This year, an added part of our mandate is to assist students in navigating their way through the academic institution by documenting student experiences for the betterment of student services at York.
ALL interested individuals are welcome to our meetings and events.
