The goal of the Changing the Culture project at the University of Rhode Island is to develop a multi-institutional, statewide network of disability resource mentors, whereby faculty and administrators encourage their department colleagues to develop policies and teaching practices that are inclusive of students with disabilities. The CTC program is systematically increasing the number of disability resource mentors in private and public postsecondary institutions in Rhode Island. One of several outcomes of the project's seminar, and the resulting day-to-day presence of disability resource mentors, has been increased system-wide inclusiveness for students with disabilities.
