New Accessibility Committee at Waterloo

Monday, October 16, 2017

On September 11, 2017, the Accessibility Committee met for the first time. The Committee, whose members will meet on a monthly basis, acts in an advisory capacity to the Associate Provost, Human Resources. Its mandate is to enable the University to adopt policies and practices that maintain an environment of equity and respect for persons with disabilities, and ensure compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The Committee seeks to adopt best practices where possible, and will incorporate innovation, wellness and continuous improvement into crafting solutions.
