One U Thriving


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 come from several units across campus, including Capital Programs and Space; Center for Disability and Access; Center for Ethnic Student Affairs; College of Architecture and Planning; Disability Studies; Facilities; Human Resources; Office of General Counsel; Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action; Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; Planning, Design, and Construction; School of Medicine; Teaching and Learning Technologies; and University Information Technology.
