About Us

ND Ability focuses on providing social, cultural, and intellectual activities for faculty, staff and their family members with disabilities, and the University at large, as well as providing members with supports designed to expand their social and professional networks. The group will offer employees an opportunity to receive support from similarly situated individuals. The group will also connect members to resources made available through the University to improve their Notre Dame experience. This mission supports the University of Notre Dame’s mission to diversity and inclusion.
