Our People

The Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies (CCIDS) is currently comprised of 14 faculty and staff representing a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines. All CCIDS faculty and some professional staff hold academic appointments in at least one academic department of the University of Maine. More than 60% of the Center’s faculty and staff are individuals with disabilities, family members, and/or guardians, which helps to ensure that these perspectives are embedded in all CCIDS activities.
