Accessibility Tour: Wayfinding, Skywalks and Resources
Raising Awareness, Connecting with Campus Partners
Friday, November 11, 2022 · 12 - 1 PM
Navigating UMBC's campus-on-a-hill as a person with a disability brings out overt and sometimes more subtle features of its accessible design. Join us to learn more and discuss:
What are the features? We have many, including a Skywalk and several upgrades that happened while we were remote.
What are the bugs? Learn more about how work with situations, whether it's contacting Work Control for a repair (410-455-2550), reporting an accessibility concern, or working with campus partners, such as Facilities Management and DoIT to support inclusion. Accessibility is everyone's responsibility.
We will meet outdoors at the Sondheim Statue (he is offering his seat) between the Sondheim and Math Psych Buildings on the Lower Academic Row. Stops include Student Disability Services, the Academic Core, Adaptive Computing within the Library, and Retriever Integrated Health - which supports both physical and mental health. The tour is limited to a small group includes indoor spaces so bring your mask. During inclement weather we gather on the second floor of Math Psychology, in or near room 222.
Can't make the day or time? More tours are planned. Have a (small) group? Email us to set up a day and time that works for the occasion.
