Director's Message

Floyd Morris, Director of CDS Welcome to the Centre for Disability Studies (CDS) here at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus. The University has made a bold and courageous step in establishing the centre, a first of its kind here in Jamaica that will be the central intellectual andtraining hub for research and public advocacy geared towards the members of the disabled community both here in Jamaica and in the Caribbean region. It is our goal to advance the agenda of making the Jamaican society and the Caribbean at large: an inclusive society by 2030, respecting the rights of the disabled, as well as to actively place the issue of disability on the development agenda within the Caribbean. Join us as we work towards this important goal of transforming and empowering persons with disabilities.


One Love, God Bless.
