The Doogri Institute conducts research, provides professional training, and direct services through creative and expressive arts to individuals who are disadvantaged both by disability and family privilege. Our research and advocacy team consists of scholars and leading experts in their field. All research, professional training and direct services are augmented by lived experiences. The program creates a bridge for previously oppressed individuals in their quest to immerse themselves in mainstream culture and higher education. This systemic empowerment may lead to self actualization.
