Welcome to the DCC!

Syracuse University Disability Cultural Center

Syracuse University has established a Disability Cultural Center (DCC) to coordinate campus-wide social, educational, and cultural activities on disability issues for students, faculty, staff, and community members with and without disabilities.

The Disability Cultural Center is the first of its kind in the United States to be housed within a Division of Student Affairs, rather than a disability services office; it is also the first to be run by a full-time professional staff member.  SU's Disability Cultural Center has a purpose that is parallel to other cultural centers on campus, including the LGBT Resource Center, the Lillian and Emmanuel Slutzker Center for International Services, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Please visit and feel free to post on our Tumblr blog!

Please visit our DCC YouTube channel, where you can check out our video, The Syracuse University Disability Cultural Center: History, Evolution, and Future!

The DCC Welcomes All Transfer Students!

We in the Disability Cultural Center (DCC) welcome all transfer students to Syracuse University, and invite you to participate in DCC programs and activities, all of which are meant to celebrate a community that fosters pride in one’s identity and creates a culture of inclusion.  We seek to build a campus community that values everyone’s capabilities, and recognizes that all individuals have the potential to excel and contribute to the academic and social environment at Syracuse University and beyond.

We encourage you to browse our website and to visit us in 230 Schine Student Center.  Due to limited staffing, it is best to make an appointment.  Feel free to call us at: 315-443-4486.  Thanks!  We look forward to meeting you!
