Accessibility & Inclusion Statement
The Cummings Center for the History of Psychology is committed to providing access to the historical record of psychology and related human sciences to all audiences. We recognize the systematic barriers that lead to inequity and seek to contribute to the creation of a more inclusive and equitable culture. This includes addressing the historic and continuing role of psychology and human science and culture studies more generally in supporting and rationalizing unjust systems and practices. We stand against social injustice, including all forms of racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and transphobia. Further, we recognize that the process of more accurately representing and uplifting marginalized groups within the historical record is both ongoing and necessary.
We are actively working to create inclusive exhibits and programming that center historically marginalized voices, as well as to ensure that these programs are designed to be accessible to all visitors. We will work to assist visitors with disabilities in accessing all portions of our museum and galleries, as well as in conducting research within our archival holdings
