Institute for Community Inclusion @ UMass Boston

50 Years of Inclusion

Some 50 years ago, the first elements of today's Institute for Community Inclusion, were formed as the Developmental Evaluation Clinic (At Boston Children's Hospital). In the years following, the modern ICI blossomed into leading disability focused training and research organization that you see today. Join us for a year of special events, celebrating 50 years of inclusion. To keep updated on our developing schedule, feel free join our mailing list, follow us on social media, and check in on our events calendar.
