Mapping Disability Inclusion is a Knowledge Community that aims to document, connect, and publicize the networks of scholars, practitioners, and advocates working on disability inclusion at the University of Michigan. This Knowledge Community aims to highlight and grow the communities of practice committed to ensuring disabled people's access to physical, digital, and social spaces, and to increasing collective responsibility for eradicating anti-disability bias.This Mapping Disability Inclusion Knowledge Community emerges from a complex moment in which U-M is an established leader in accessibility and disability studies, and also has further work to do in improving campus climate for individuals with disabilities. The project builds on existing institutional strengths and responds to research on disability and higher education.
