About Us


The mission of the Georgetown Disability Cultural Center (DCC) is to support, educate, and empower disabled community members of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, genders and ages, celebrate disabled people’s achievements, and advocate for a climate that promotes social justice. 


The goal of the Disability Cultural Initiative is the establishment of a fully-fledged Disability Cultural Center that will coordinate and integrate the educational, academic, social, and support programming for disabled students, faculty, staff, allies, and people interested in learning more about disability. 

The Disability Cultural Initiative provides leadership and program direction on the campus’s efforts to ensure the well-being of its disabled community members, by making sure University policies, procedures, programs, services, and community members are informed by contemporary understanding of intersectional disabled experience and current best practices in outreach and programming. The DCI promotes an inclusive environment that facilitates the advancement, growth, and development of disabled students, staff, and faculty with apparent and non-apparent disabilities, through advocacy, policy development, and institutional intervention to support diversity on campus.
