About Us

Mission Statement

The Disability Cultural Center (DCC) celebrates disability as an intersectional identity through the transformative power of the arts, sciences, and community. In keeping with our Jesuit values, the DCC calls on Georgetown University to foster a culture of access inside and outside of the classroom that embraces non-apparent and apparent disabilities as vital to the vibrant diversity of humanity.


We strive to live out our commitment to:  

  • Community in Diversity by
    • centering the lived experience and wisdom of disabled people
    • cultivating cross-disability solidarity for Hoyas
    • curating accessible events where all are welcome to participate as their full selves 
  • Living as Hoyas for Others by
    • promoting a campus culture of access
    • developing opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration
    • fostering mutual flourishing built on interdependence  
  • Educating the Whole Person by
