Redefining normal,
reshaping our world

OUR VISION

The Labs connect UCLA students, faculty, and staff with community networks to examine themes demanding our attention, advocacy, and re-invention.

The universal nature of disability means everyone at some point will experience physical, cognitive, or emotional ability differences – short- or long-term, subtle or severe, visible or invisible – offering limitless opportunities to understand what it is to be human. The Disability Studies Inclusion Labs work to advance society toward a future that ensures access and equity for all.

OUR MAIN GOALS

ENGAGE

To engage Lab participants in disability culture and explore barriers based on ability

ACT

To develop strategic networks and action plans for social change

CHANGE

To bend societal practices toward universal inclusion

OUR LEADERSHIP

The Inclusion Labs are housed under the UCLA Dean of Undergraduate Education and guided by the Faculty Advisory Committee for the Disability Studies minor. The Labs are facilitated by an implementation team through Undergraduate Education Initiatives (UEI) with guidance from Community Consultants and Collaborators.
