“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

Imagine a place.

In that place, there are trees that Pachamama created and many creatures that roam on the land. Deer, lombrisas, newts, and human people all exist together in peace. The birds sing their praises and all you can do is sit in the silence and soak it all in.
