Tips on Improving Accessibility at Queen's - Jan 2018

Accessibility Tips - January 2018

Access Queen's banner

Queen’s University is committed to creating a campus community that is safe and inclusive for all individuals. Successful learning, living, and employment outcomes are the result of a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, employees, faculty, and senior administrators. As Queen’s continues to enhance its culture of inclusiveness, it will require the recognition and support of everyone on campus to ensure the removal of barriers to accessibility.

Our goal is to advance our understanding of what makes a truly accessible organization, and to transform that knowledge into a culture that builds accessibility into everything that we do.

With that goal in mind, please read and follow the tips in the article and take a tour of the Accessibility Hub which is full of information on services, supports and how-to's.
