Disabilities, University Committee on


The University Committee on Disabilities (UCD) advises and assists the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion (VPDI) regarding its leadership role in promoting and fostering a campus environment of inclusiveness and accessibility. 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.

See link to the UCD Charter, below.


The University Committee on Disabilities (UCD) has reconvened after a long hiatus. The committee and each subcommittee meet once per month to discuss how to advocate, educate, and promote an inclusive campus for individuals of all abilities.
