Mission and Vision:

DREAM endeavors to create an inclusive and supportive community and to promote disability justice at the University of Maryland School of Social Work and in the community at large. We strive to engage individuals with disabilities and their allies in respectful and compassionate discourse to promote greater awareness and inclusion of disability on campus. We aim to advance disability justice by recognizing the diversity of disability, along with the various cultural and systemic barriers faced by persons with disabilities. Through education and advocacy, we work to break down structural barriers and advance the inclusion of persons with disabilities within the School of Social Work, the social work profession, and our communities.


While we use the word “disability” in our group’s materials to align with the greater disability rights movement, we recognize that the word disability may not align with every individual’s experience. To foster a respectful and inclusive environment, we welcome and encourage students to self-identify and use language that reflects and honors their own experience. DREAM Disability Justice is a fully affirming organization, opposed to all forms of discrimination.
