The SDC (previously known as the Disabled Student Commission) was established in 1974 by a student group called the UW Disability Student Association. For twenty years, the commission advocated for disability issues on campus until it disbanded itself in 1994 due to feelings of alienation from the greater campus community. The Commission was brought back to the ASUW in 2004, and is now called the Student Disability Commission.
Here’s a quick video from the 2020-2021 leadership team, explaining SDC and DASA.
