Research Consortium on Disability
Poliosis by Diego Perez
The Research Consortium on Disability (RCD) conducts and coordinates disability-related research at Fordham University to help guide the world on a path towards inclusion.
The people who make up the Consortium are social scientists and scholars in the humanities, in business, education, law, and social services doing research in disability studies and in disability and health-related fields.
The Research Consortium on Disability builds on five years of activities of the Faculty Working Group on Disability. Sophie Mitra (Economics, Faculty of Arts and Science), Rebecca Sanchez (English, Faculty of Arts and Science) who have chaired the working group, direct the Consortium together with Laura Wernick (Graduate School of Social Service).
Diego practiced art in high school classes and has taken two art courses at the Honk Kong campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design. One can currently find him in New York, working towards a career in neuroscience while currently seeking outlets for his artwork. Questions on quantum physics, the nature of being, the relationship between art and society, and where to find the best dim sum place in New York rattle his mind on the daily.
