The primary aim of the Centre for Disability Studies (CDS) at the CMS College is to engage with learners with disability (henceforth referred to as stakeholders), to facilitate access, equal opportunity and inclusion.
As a pioneering centre for Disability Studies in India, it is our our aim to foster interdisciplinary research and publication, organise conferences, conduct webinars, launch MOOCs, stage plays and so on, to effect a total shift in the way society views learners with disability.
It’s our hope that our academic ventures would re-define the very idea of ‘Dis/ability’, and eventually lead to positive changes in government policy, resulting in the emergence of a more egalitarian society, guaranteeing equal rights and opportunities to everyone.
Along with these academic endeavours, it is planned to conduct extension activities with the support of all the students of the CMS College. This will foster an atmosphere of brotherhood within the campus and outside, in keeping with the vision of the founding fathers of this august institution.
