University of Massachusetts Boston is committed to diversity and inclusion. The new inclusion agenda looks at a student who has a disability - or any other kind of difference – as just one more student in a school’s population, just another difference that is part of the rich diversity of our communities and our schools. (Dianne Ferguson, Education World).
As part of the effort, the university is committed to the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities continually improving the accessibility of our campus, programs, and activities. The ADA Compliance Officer was created to guide the university’s efforts to move beyond compliance and towards seamless access.
To accomplish this the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a referral point for disability related information, services and resources; provides consultation on policy reviews and facilities planning; conducts workshops and trainings on disability related topics; handles complaints and develops disability related initiatives.
