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.

CREATE is positioned to take accessibility research to the next level. By supporting CREATE, you support education, fund research, and translate those to real-world solutions for the 1 in 4 people in the U.S. who have disabilities.

The need for greater access

A core mantra of the disability movement is “Nothing about us without us,” yet technical advances often assume a certain set of abilities, limit customizability, and fail to include people with disabilities as creators of technology.

The major challenges of creating accessible technology and of making the world accessible through technology are outpacing even the most talented individual researchers and small teams.
