Developing a Transition Plan and Self-Evaluation for UC Berkeley
Welcome to Access 2020!
At UC Berkeley, we strive to:
- create a university environment universally accessible to all regardless of their relative level of ability;
- honour the University’s critical role in the history of the Disability Rights Movement and build on the efforts of those past disability advocates; and
- search for opportunities to engage the campus in embracing equitable and inclusive practices encompassing the broadest spectrum of disabilities.
Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), the University has engaged a consulting firm, Sally Swanson Architects, to evaluate accessibility in the built environment, as well as the accessibility of the University’s programs, services and activities. This evaluation, conducted pursuant to disability-related standards and best practices, is still a work in progress. But to ensure maximum engagement and input from those we serve, the University's Disability Access & Compliance Team and Sally Swanson Architects are holding a series of virtual Town Halls.
These events will offer a brief update on the evaluation, and provide attendees the opportunity to ask questions. Additionally, all attendees are invited to complete this short survey regarding their experience of disability and accessibility at UC Berkeley.
