Building a community of teaching, research, & activism about disability

Our Mission

The NYU Council for the Study of Disability was founded in 2007 with funding from the Provost’s Office and several deans. The Council welcomes participants from the faculty and student body across all of the schools and departments at NYU. Currently, active members come from Steinhardt, Tisch, FAS, the Medical and Law Schools.
