  • Network of Academics with Disabilities and Chronic Conditions

    ​We are Chronically Academic, a network of academics with disabilities and chronic conditions. We welcome members across all academic disciplines. Our aim is to create a network of mutual support and resources for academics with disabilities and chronic conditions and to raise public awareness for our cause. Our team members all have personal experiences with disabilities and/or chronic conditions. We aim to help others with practical advice in finding concrete solutions to the issues they are facing and to share our own experiences. Most of us are early career researchers; however, we look forward to and encourage supporting and mentoring more advanced academics. 

    Besides peer support, we are also working to offer an overview of useful resources and to establish a formal mentoring network for academics with disabilities and chronic conditions. We hope to promote a societal attitude shift towards disabled academics. We believe that the current academic system needs to be transformed in order to achieve proportionate employment of academics with disabilities.
