Campus Accessibility: Facilities Projects and Discussion
Updates, Elevator Progress and Ideas
Facilities Management and the Office of Accessibility and Disability Services are hosting a review of recent, current and potential construction projects that enhance accessibility, improve the physical environment of UMBC, and benefit the entire community while supporting accessibility for people with disabilities.
Learn about elevator replacement progress, accessible design within renovation, and more! Current/planned projects will be discussed and campus members (especially those with disabilities) are encouraged to share ideas, some may inform the proposal process for UMBC's participation with the AccessMD Program. The presentation goes beyond that program - and ideas from the lived experience of people with disabilities are especially important to this event.
Please RSVP below. We understand that synchronous attendance can be a challenge for anyone with a disability and have flexible options for participation. The presentation slides are linked here.
|Submit questions and ideas ahead of the discussion via this link.|
Captioning will be provided, ASL is available for people attending in-person upon request. Masking is welcome. Asynchronous options will be communicated to registered attendees after the event. Contact email@example.com with event questions, access needs or accommodation requests.
Ideas for additional projects are also welcome at any time, please share them with Celso Guitian in FM Campus Planning via firstname.lastname@example.org and Stephanie Lazarus, ADA/Section 504 Coordinator via email@example.com / 410-455-5745. Bring UMBC accessibility concerns to the attention of Accessibility & Disability Services via this linked reporting form.
An aerial photo of a UMBC's Hilltop Circle campus accompanies this post. The academic and residential buildings are within the loop of Hilltop Circle with the Research Park and Athletic fields in the foreground. The photo is too distant to see any of the over 17,000 vibrant and dynamic UMBC community members - an estimated 25% of those students, faculty, staff and guests have a mental or physical health condition that qualifies as a disability.
