Access Center mission

The Access Center is committed to providing assistance in the university’s goal to promote equity, diversity and inclusion; to create an in-person and online community that is welcoming and supports a sense of value and belonging for students, faculty and staff.

Our aim is to remove barriers to academic success, promote self-advocacy and provide support to foster student learning and engagement in all opportunities available at the university. Creating a campus environment that is truly accessible and inclusive of all people requires the participation of every member of the community.

Our goal is to encourage our campus community to follow the principal of universal design, and to consider how we think about disability as we strive to remove attitudinal barriers and proactively facilitate accessible environments and experiences.
