University Accessibility Advisory Committee

Accessibility at the University of the Arts is overseen by the Educational Accessibility Advisor and implemented by the University Accessibility Advisory Committee. The UAAC meets monthly and is charged with developing both short- and long-range plans to improve accessibility of the UArts campus, its events and programs, to examine the feasibility and impact of these plans, and oversee the implementation of these recommendations.
