Universal Design & Access Committee

The Universal Design & Access Committee advises the Steering Committee on policies and procedures affecting campus community members and visitors, including, but not restricted to, persons with disabilities relative to employment, educational opportunities, and accessibility. The committee proactively works with a range of university entities to enhance university accessibility for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors according to the principles of Universal Design, in areas such as curricular design, built environment, technology and information, campus events, and workplace inclusivity.


The administrators, staff, faculty, and students on the committee assist in developing University policies and procedures related to accessibility and oversee CF&R funds specifically made available to address access-related barriers.
