UQ Disability Action Plan 2016-2018

The University of Queensland Disability Action Plan 2016-2018 (DAP) constitutes formal recognition of the University’s commitment to persons with disability and presents a framework of principles, objectives and operational action items to ensure that the University is a disability confident organisation that is inclusive and accessible for people of all abilities. The DAP is informed by provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and the associated Disability Standards of Education 2005.

The University, as an education provider and as an employer, is committed to improving the inclusion, accessibility and awareness of disability in all areas of the University. The Plan provides an operational framework that seeks to address and remove potential barriers that may be present in the University’s physical and digital infrastructure, employment and education design and practice so that all members of our community are able to participate in, and have access to, all that the University has to offer its staff and students.
