University of Sydney launches Disability Inclusion Action Plan

The University of Sydney has reached an important milestone in inclusion and access for people with disability, with today’s launch of its Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2019-24 during Disability Inclusion Week.

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2019-24 strengthens our commitment to protect staff, students and visitors with disability from discrimination and support all members of our community to succeed at the University.

The new six-year plan aligns with our core values of inclusion and diversity, and community expectations that people with disability are included in all areas of public life.

The new plan reflects the experience of staff and students with disability. They contributed substantially to the plan’s creation during an extensive consultation and development process. There are a number of initiatives that will be implemented during the life of the plan, including the following.

  • Implement accessible wayfinding and navigation on our campuses, including technology-driven solutions.
  • Ensure our curriculum demonstrates application of the principles of Universal Design for Learning.
  • Enhance strategic employment of people with disability, including the creation of an employment fund to support hiring managers in recruiting people with a disability.
