A University for All Abilities - this article is available on pages 8-9 of the April edition (Vol. 27, No. 4) of UWA News.
The University of Western Australia affirms its strong endorsement and acceptance of people with a disability or medical condition.
UWA is committed to meeting their needs by providing an environment of equitable opportunity and outcomes, appropriate access and support.
The UWA Disability Access and Inclusion Action Plan (DAIP) has been developed as part of the University's overarching commitment to equity and diversity which is clearly articulated in the UWA Strategic Plan.
This commitment is formalised through various policies and plans, including the University's Equal Opportunity and Diversity Policy statement and the Staff Disability and Medical Conditions Policy.
The University's core values of equity and excellence are the fundamental principles for the achievement of the full potential of all staff and students.
The University is committed to ensuring that the campus experience of people with a disability, whether they are staff, students or visitors, is similar to that experienced by the University community as a whole, and that staff and students with a disability enjoy success in the same measure as their peers.
