Accessibility Hub Mandate
The Accessibility Hub will serve to elevate inclusion and improve access for everyone on our campus. The Accessibility Hub will not only provide support and feedback concerning accessibility initiatives, it will also serve as an online community for those seeking information on disability and accessibility issues on campus, and assist the university in meeting its obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
Queen's University is committed to accessibility for persons with disabilities. We do this through the provision of accessible service in the areas of information and communication, facilities, and customer service.
