What do we do?
We form deliberate and strategic partnerships with faculty, staff and students in order to create and maintain a culture of accessibility and disability inclusion on campus.
- Ensuring that the University is meeting its compliance obligations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
- Advising and working collaboratively to create accessible and inclusive programs, services, classrooms and workplaces.
- Providing workshops and training opportunities on accessibility, the duty to accommodate, McMaster University’s Accessibility Policy and the AODA.
- Communicating to the McMaster community about the various roles and responsibilities we individually and collectively must carry out to meet and go beyond AODA compliance requirements.
- Managing the central McMaster Accessibility Hub website.
