Overview

The DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) Center is dedicated to empowering people with disabilities through technology and education. It promotes awareness and accessibility—in both the classroom and the workplace—to maximize the potential of individuals with disabilities and make our communities more vibrant, diverse, and inclusive.

"Some kids with disabilities have expectations that are lower than they need to be. At DO-IT, we try to change that."

Sheryl Burgstahler, Ph.D.
DO-IT Director

The DO-IT Center strives to:

  • Increase the success of people with disabilities in challenging academic programs and careers.
  • Promote the application of universal design to physical spaces, information technology, instruction, and services.
  • Freely distribute online content, publications, and videos for use in presentations, exhibits, and the classroom.
  • Provide resources for students with disabilities, K-12 educators, postsecondary faculty and administrators, librarians, employers, parents, and mentors.

DO-IT is based at the University of Washington, Seattle, but efforts are global. Together, we can DO-IT!
