My name is Margaret Camp. I am the Director of Student Accessibility Services at Clemson University. I received an MEd in School Psychology from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and a BS Psychology from Guilford College. I am partnering with the College Diabetes Network on behalf of the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD), wherein I have held several leadership positions. Since age eight I have had a rare form of Diabetes (Insipidus), which is not very similar to Diabetes Mellitus, but the experience has made me interested in helping students with chronic health diagnoses navigate college life. I work from a social justice/equity framework and love what I do! We have an active CDN chapter at Clemson University, and I have worked with them in the past to raise awareness and educate the campus about the needs of students with Diabetes. I am interested in creating a web of support for students with Diabetes that includes staff on campus from food services, health and wellness centers, residential life, accessibility offices and others to ensure that these students have equal access to all that the college experience entails. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for students with Diabetes, just as there is no stereotypical ‘Diabetic student’; I want to help students understand their individual needs and how campus resources can help them thrive in college. I am excited to work with others to identify needs and create tools to make this happen!
