Building an Inclusive and Accessible Community
The Accessibility Hub is a central online resource for accessibility at Queen’s University. It 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 AODA. Learn more about Queen's Accessibility Initiatives.
Queen’s University is committed to building a campus community that is inclusive for all individuals, and ensuring that its services, supports and spaces are accessible for persons with disabilities.
We are a community that works together to create an environment where everyone has a full and enriching Queen’s experience.
Successful learning, living, and employment outcomes are the result of a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, staff, faculty, and senior administrators towards removing and preventing barriers to participation.
As Queen’s moves forward with a strategy to positively impact society and the planet, we understand that students, staff, and faculty of all backgrounds and abilities must be a part of that process. The Accessibility Hub, celebrating its 10th year, is an example of how an impactful culture of inclusion is being fostered within our campus community, which will in turn influence the world. I am proud of the Accessibility Hub’s advocacy and look forward to what this group will achieve in the next 10 years.
Vice-Principal (Culture, Equity and Inclusion)
For the past 10 years, the Accessibility Hub has been an essential resource for the Queen’s community. Under the leadership and guidance of Andrew Ashby, the Manager of Accessibility in the HREO, the Hub has provided invaluable support and resources to meet the diverse accessibility and accommodation needs of the students, staff and faculty at Queen’s. I look forward to the continued great work and services that the Accessibility Hub will offer in the years to come.
