Collaborations and Partnerships

BBI and Our Partners: Making a Difference, Together

For over twenty years, BBI has had one focus: empowering people with disabilities to be full and equal members of their communities with the same opportunities to live, work, and play as everyone else. Our work with partners across the United States and world help us bring this vision — project by project, day by day — closer to reality.

BBI partners with Fellows & Affiliated Researchers across disciplines at Syracuse University and other educational institutions as well as with public and private agencies. We have worked and are working with partners at the state, local, and national levels — from Syracuse University to the National University of Ireland, from U.S. state, local, and national government agencies to Universities in Israel, from the Grow Financial Credit Union in St. Petersburg, FL. to the World Bank.

If you are interested in collaborating with BBI, please contact Senior Advisor Michael Morris.
