Disability Programme 2017-2020

The Equity Office is leading collaborative work on the University of Auckland’s Disability Programme (2017-2020).

The programme:

  • aims to identify and implement a range of initiatives to help ensure the success of students and staff with disabilities
  •  supports the University’s commitment to be safe, equitable and inclusive for everyone who studies and works here. Read the University’s Equity Policy and Guidelines. 

 The Disability Programme is sponsored by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Equity) with strategic oversight from the Equity Leadership Committee. The programme receives regular input and guidance from its Advisory Group, comprising staff and students with lived experience and/or expertise in this area.
