Curtin is now finalising the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012 – 2017, which follows the 2007 – 2011 plan. Through it, we aim to improve on our practices to provide an accessible and inclusive environment for our students, staff and visitors with disabilities.
We have evolved from a ‘removing barriers’ approach to a proactive model of shared responsibilities and inclusive design. We intend to use the experience of our internationally recognised experts to guide us in best practice trends, to engage in the Disability Services Commission’s Count Me In – Disability Future Directions strategy and to embed the principles of Universal Design more fully in our facilities, academic programs and services.
We need our students, staff and the West Australian public to help us finalise our plan and we encourage you to take this final opportunity to give us your comments and suggestions by using the comments form [.doc – 35 kB] before the deadline of Friday 2 March 2012.
UPDATE: The draft plan has been removed as the plan has now been finalised. View the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012 – 2017 [.PDF 1.55MB]
