Get Involved

DREAM

DREAM (Disability Rights, Education, Activism, and Mentoring) is a national organization for and by college students with disabilities.  DREAM’s work is supported by sponsoring organization, the National Center for College Students with Disabilities (NCCSD), which is based at the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD).

DREAM is open to higher education students of all types, including graduate students, part-time students, and those who are auditing higher education courses.  It is open to students of all ages with any kind of disability, culturally Deaf students, and nondisabled students who are our allies and peers.  DREAM explicitly includes people who have traditionally been marginalized or under-represented in the disability or higher education communities.

Peer Notetaker

Every term, SOAR students are in need of their peers’ notes as an academic accommodation. Peer notetakers just upload their personal notes for each class session to a private folder in our SOAR Student Dashboard and get paid $100 for the semester. Notetakers who have never previously worked for Furman will also need to complete WorkDay onboarding and I-9 verification before they can legally begin working. This is a great resume booster, and you would be helping a student gain equal access to the class material! Please email SOAR@furman.edu or stop by our office to learn more!
