CREATE is the Center for Research and Education on Accessible Technology and Experiences. Our mission is to make technology accessible and to make the world accessible through technology. Our vision is a world where people with disabilities are full participants in shaping tomorrow’s world.

CREATE associate directors

CREATE is a community of faculty, students, and partners who share a commitment to building accessible futures

Our researchers, educators, developers, and innovators recognize that emerging technologies can pose new barriers to people with disabilities, and that they hold promise to remove older barriers. By bringing together researchers across multiple UW schools and departments, CREATE harnesses the diverse expertise necessary to realize a more just and equitable technological future, one that overcomes existing barriers and ensures new ones do not arise.

RESEARCH INITIATIVES

AccessEngineering students and CREATE Associate Director Katherine M. Steele work on modeling for accessibility tools. One student is standing, the other is in a power wheelchair.

We are committed to centering disabled perspectives in our work so that our innovations meet the needs of disabled people in our communities and beyond

The commitment to ensure that research, innovation, and discussions draw from disabled people’s experiences extends from our Center leadership (50% disabled) to our community partners program, which fosters collaboration between students and local, regional, and national disability-serving nonprofits.

A nexus for advocacy for people with disabilities across the university

With our experts and campus partners in wide-ranging fields, we also focus on re-shaping STEM education, with two aims: making sure STEM education is accessible to students with disabilities; ensuring that our graduates enter the workforce fully educated in accessible technology.
