Make Connections

Are you interested in meeting other UWM students with disabilities, chronic illnesses, and mental health conditions? DREAM at UWM is open to culturally Deaf students and students with any type of disability, chronic illness, or mental health condition and their allies. We gather regularly to exchange information, promote self-advocacy, provide encouragement and explore resources.

Let Your Voice be Heard

We want to hear from you! Join us for your opportunity to help improve the campus-wide experience for students with disabilities and increase the level of disability awareness on campus.
