Accessibility at UAA

Design should try to minimize potential barriers whenever possible

  • Physical spaces should be designed for a variety of body sizes and shapes
  • Academic offerings need to ensure high standards but also offer high levels of flexibility
  • Online Information and services need to be designed with intuitive navigation and should be used easily by a variety of assistive technologies

Accommodation process is used when barriers are encountered

  • Student requests for academic accommodation are made through Disability Support Services
  • Community, program, or event requests should be made to the sponsoring entity. Accessibility Notices are very important.
  • Employee requests should be directed to the department. Consultation is available through Human Resources and/or Campus Diversity and Compliance.
  • The Accommodation Process is outlined in Board of Regents Policy
