Commission on Disabilities Report
Commission's Second Goal (from "Tool"
submitted May 2011):
Improve campus climate, including physical facilities, for
all who study, work and visit the University
- 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/
Timeframe: complete access walks by early spring semester
- 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
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.
