Changing the Culture

Our Mission…

The goal of the Changing the Culture program is to foster the development of an integrative, accepting and facilitating environment for college students who have disabilities. Negative stigmatizing can be the most limiting feature of having a disability by denying contributions to society at large. Information, knowledge and sensitivity can combat negative stigma and facilitate inclusion. But, more importantly, helping to create a community that is truly culturally competent will prevent negative stereotypes and remove future barriers for our citizens with disabilities.
