The committee supports UMMS' long standing commitment to a welcoming and accessible environment to assure that individuals with disabilities may participate in all of the benefits and opportunities afforded to the University community.
The committee works in collaboration with the DEOO and the Facilities departments to assure that all buildings owned or operated by the University are accessible. In addition, the committee works with the DEOO to assure that all policies, procedures and practices are in accordance with state and federal laws to assure reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities where appropriate.
