Disability, Culture and Diversity Research Group Mission
The interdisciplinary nature of the Disability, Culture and Diversity Research Grouphas fostered a conceptually and methodologically diverse program of research to:
  • explore factors that facilitate and impede healthy lifestyles and enhance quality of life for people with disabilities across the lifespan; and
  • understand the instrumental effects of leisure and physical activity for people with disabilities across the lifespan.

To address this mission, research in the group is focused on quality of life for persons with a mental disability in four areas: factors that facilitate and impede social integration and community belonging; later life options; independence; and the contribution of recreation, leisure, and physical activity.
