Disability History Museum

In recognition of Disability History Month, Kari Lewinsohn, executive director of Student Support, encourages staff to visit the “Disability History Museum.”

The Disability History Museum is a virtual project that aims to provide site visitors, including people with and without disabilities, with tools “to help deepen their understanding of human variation and difference, and to expand appreciation of how vital to our common life the experiences of people with disabilities have always been.”

Its mission, as printed on the museum website, is to “foster a deeper understanding about how changing cultural values, notions of identity, laws and policies have shaped and influenced the experience of people with disabilities, their families and their communities over time.”
