A university-wide committee works to improve access on campus for faculty, staff, students, and visitors with disabilities. Established in the late 1970's, the University Accessibility Committee has conducted self-evaluations of UW, as required by several laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Working from a dynamic Transition Plan, the committee has identified priority accessibility improvements over the years for the University to implement. The committee continues to address access issues such as handicapped parking, snow removal, maintenance of elevators and lifts, use of products that affect people with chemical sensitivities, etc., and makes recommendations to the University administration or other appropriate departments regarding additional accessibility improvements to be made.
The committee consists of individuals representing the Vice President for Administration, Disability Support Services, the Office of Diversity/Equal Employment Opportunity, the Vice President for Student Affairs office, Residence Life and Dining Services, Physical Plant, Facilities Planning, Legal Counsel, Auxiliary Services, and the Wyoming INstitute for Disabilities (WIND). If you have suggestions or topics you would like to have the University Accessibility Committee address, talk to your UDSS Coordinator.
