Accessibility Program

The Accessibility Program supports the university in making all students, faculty, staff and visitors feel welcome by providing consistent, effortless access to the university's facilities. The chair of the program, through outreach to the disability community on campus, advises on and implements policy, practices and procedures related to access for people with disabilities.

Process: This program’s mandate is to upgrade one washroom and install one elevator per year. However, if the campus community does see issues, they are encouraged to contact the chair of the committee as they do also try to perform small fixes around campus such as curb cuts for wheelchair safety and accessibility.
