Disability Action Plan
The Disability Action Plan (2014 - 2018) continues the University's proud history of supporting students experiencing disability to participate equitably in the academic and co-curricular environment. From the establishment of the Handicapped Students' Advisory Committee in 1968, to the lodgement of the Disability Action Plan with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission in 1994 - the first of its kind in Australia - the University has remained at the forefront of disability service provision in the higher education sector.
The Plan details the University's aims and strategies for addressing the challenges of achieving equitable access for students with disabilities and reaffirms the University's commitment to providing a rich Melbourne experience for all of its students.
