We envision a world where all people live, work and play in their chosen communities through their life course.
As a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, we work to promote self-determined lives for people with disabilities.
As an institute within an urban research university, we work to promote access to opportunities and resources for unserved and underserved populations.
We support and exemplify the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s strategic pillars.
