Introductory Video


What we do

  • Identify barriers to access

  • Determine appropriate accommodations

  • Facilitate conversations about access on campus

  • Promote disability as diversity

  • Serve as a resource to the campus community

  • Provide trainings and consultations

  • Advocate for universal design

Our values

  • Human variation is natural and vital in the development of dynamic campus communities.

  • Inclusion and full participation are a matter of social justice. Accommodations are a civil right.

  • Intentional design is powerful in its ability to both promote and limit full participation and inclusion.

  • Creating usable, equitable, sustainable, and inclusive environments is a shared university responsibility.

  • Variation in ability is a natural part of the human experience.  Disability is a difference not a defect.

  • Individuals experience disability in unique ways. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.
