Disabilities Service Troop
Cornell's DST helps students with injuries/permanent disabilities with any and all personal needs. From getting groceries and carrying books to class to typing assignments and doing laundry, our volunteers can be flexible enough to meet any request sent through our blogspot request form. DST volunteers also have a unique opportunity to not only provide valuable service and promote disability awareness but to also develop management, marketing, and business skills through expanding our partnerships with campus and local organizations such as the Public Service Center, Gannett Health Services, and Student Disabilities Services. Faculty, staff, undergraduates, alumni, and graduate students are all welcome to volunteer.
Have an Injury or a Disability? Want Some Help? OR Want to Help Fellow Cornellians? Ready to Lend a Hand?

SDS Lending Library
Location: 420 CCC
SDS has had the good fortune to receive a gift from Rhonda Carniol '79 to develop a lending library of materials on disability for the Cornell Community in the memory of her mother, Diane Carniol. This is a fitting tribute to a dedicated educator who helped her students recognize and reach their true potential.
The lending library is a growing collection of books and materials on disability topics. These resources have been chosen to expand our knowledge of how disability fits into the spectrum of the college experience. We welcome you to borrow from our library and hope you will continue to check back with us as our collection grows. Check out the list: Lending Library
