The Disability Studies Cluster (DiSC) proposes a paradigm in which to view disability as a common experience across age, gender, and culture/ethnicity, not as a state that separates a person from being healthy, or as a condition that only impacts a few specific types of people. Toward this end, the mission of DiSC is to create and promote opportunities for increased awareness, networking, and discussion of the experience and the representations of disability. Funded by UCIS.
