 Campus Climate

Commission on Disabilities Report

UCT Membership: Listed on:
UMD Commission on Disabilities Web Site

Commission's Second Goal (from "Tool" submitted May 2011):
Improve campus climate, including physical facilities, for all who study, work and visit the University

Action Steps:

  • Complete interior and exterior "Access Walks" around campus
    Commission will sponsor and invite specific guests, including Campus Change Team, as well as campus community. Purpose of the walk will be to identify areas of campus presenting access barriers or challenges to individuals w/ disabilities.
    Timeframe: complete access walks by early spring semester 2012
  • Develop a procedure for prioritizing annual HEPRA allocations and other resources for UMD building renovations and physical facility improvements that includes input from all constituents
  • Develop an outreach campaign regarding the availability of accommodations for students and staff, and the procedures for obtaining accommodations
  • Develop a campus visitor/guest portal for requesting accommodations-esp for identifying visitor parking information. Develop a communication plan; clarify accommodations statement requirements for web, printed materials

These action steps align with Strategic Plan Goal 2, Action Step 3B as detailed in the 2011-1012 Campus Climate Agenda dated August 2011. The Commission on Disabilities remains committed to pursuing additional goals and action steps outlined in the "Tool for Achieving Change" document submitted to the Campus Change Team in May 2011; however, timelines for these may need to be adjusted.
