The College Committee on Disability Issues (CCDI) has made extraordinary contributions to the post-secondary education system of Ontario. The outcomes of CCDI's leadership and influence are the direct result of member's collective enthusiasm and dedication for students and the issues brought forward. CCDI's diverse and multiple accomplishments are evident in system processes, such as the college application form and self-identification; and, the Bursary for Students with Disabilities through the Ontario Student Award Program.

Professional accomplishments are evident within service delivery, as in the Special Connections Newsletter, The Philosophy and Policies Document; and, the Research Subsidy.
