AAA Statement on Disabilities

American Anthropological Association Statement on Disabilities

(adopted January 1993)

It is moved that the American Anthropological Association, in keeping with the American Disabilities Act, urges faculty to adopt and apply an attitude of acceptance, adventure, collegiality, and respect toward disabled persons in the attainment of their goals, and commit themselves to becoming knowledgeable with regard to disabilities through interactions with disabled persons (including students), seeking expert input, and reading texts outside of mainstream anthropology on the topic of disability.
