The Disability Knowledge Community aims to create a network of student affairs professionals dedicated to access and inclusion for disability communities.
The DKC envisions a universally accessible collegiate experience for all individuals.
Through our collective expertise on disability and accessibility, we seek to:
- Share resources and provide educational opportunities that reframe disability as a valued aspect of diversity.
- Advocate for equitable practices and policies that foster participation for individuals with disabilities.
- Create professional development opportunities and produce scholarly articles surrounding disability identity, accessibility, equity and inclusion.
Welcome from the DKC Chair
We must work together to champion efforts that increase accessibility, both in the classroom and across campus. We must frame disability in an inclusive paradigm that celebrates diverse embodiments and disability culture. We must strive towards transforming inclusion by removing physical, technological and attitudinal barriers. My educational philosophy is grounded in the belief that an accessible and equitable education is a civic right that should be afforded to all individuals. Let us embrace the work ahead, support one another throughout the journey, and lead efforts that embrace access and equity for all.
