Disabilities, University Committee on

Charge

More specifically, the UCD assists the Vice President's focus of removing barriers to access, providing education to foster awareness to the campus community, and equipping the community with tools to spearhead other initiatives that address inequities. The UCD also establishes and maintains close relationships with persons and groups that are interested in accessibility throughout campus.
