In Summer 2022, the UIC DCC hosted a virtual conference to bring together already-established disability cultural centers. Participants were invited to share stories about how we came into existence, collectively define questions, and strategize about developing disability culture at colleges and universities.

The Symposium on Disability Cultural Centers in Higher Education ("DCC Symposium") had two main goals:

  1. To bring already-established DCCs into conversation with one another to build knowledge and strategies for doing this work
  2. To empower and educate administrators, staff, faculty, and students who are interested in creating and integrating this important cultural space in their home institutions.
