Update

In the wake of the proposed University-Mandatory Leave of Absence Policy, a wide range of student groups and grassroots movements organized in order to voice their opposition. As part of this dialogue, the UTSU, in collaboration with Students for Barrier Free Access, hosted a panel on the Policy in order to discuss how it will impact disabled students from various backgrounds. Following the discussion of the negative impacts of the Policy, the conversation turned to brainstorming ways in which the university could improve in its mental health and disability policy.
