Access & disABILITY Alliance
To increase awareness of, and to promote access and equity for, individuals with disabilities throughout the Cal Poly Pomona campus community.
AdA History & Purpose
The Access & disABILITY Alliance (AdA) is an organization on the Cal Poly Pomona campus. Formed on May 27, 2008, the AdA is comprised of faculty, staff and students whose goal is to promote awareness, sensitivity, and a cultural identity of those with disabilities.
The AdA is a self-funded and donation based diversity group that has joined the ranks of the other Affinity groups on campus such as BFSA, LFSSA, APFSA, Pride Alliance, and the Native American Coalition.
We strive to provide advocacy, to create a welcoming and inclusive campus environment, and to provide educational programs that encourage the idea that a disability should not be seen as a limitation, but rather, as a sign of perseverance, strength, and determination in accomplishing all life endeavors.
A sense of community is developed through regular AdA meetings. AdA members plan and offer events and programs aligned with our mission annually. All members of the campus community are welcome to join our AdA meetings.
