Driven by Creating Opportunities

The University of Memphis Institute on Disability (UMID) is driven by creating opportunities and fostering purpose.  We  develop opportunities for inclusion, opportunities for education and opportunities for employment throughout this community and beyond. UMID has formed The Partnership in Disability Studies to assist people with physical and developmental disabilities in finding meaningful and lasting employment. Our vision is to form alliances with government, private, academic and legal entities to research and develop programs that encourage people with disabilities to pursue a higher education toward graduation and employment. The future can be so much more inclusive!
