Our mission is to translate research into sustainable community practices that contribute to independent, self-determined, inclusive and productive lives for people with disabilities and their families.
We envision a Georgia in which all people, with and without disabilities, urban and rural, and of all races and ethnicities are full, contributing members of their communities.
Our vision reflects our values of respect for all, recognition of essential human rights, appreciation of unique strengths and gifts, the importance of cultural competence in all programs and services, and an understanding of the positive contributions of individuals, families and communities.
We seek to be a bridge between the academic and disability communities, developing and sustaining mutually respectful partnerships and building a legacy of leaders and programs that support our mission.
The Center for Leadership in Disability is committed to promoting accessibility by seeking to provide accommodations that ensure all stakeholders can meaningfully participate in all aspects of the center’s activities.
