Campus Accessibility Project Discussion
A review of past, present and future construction projects
Want to know more about what's happening on campus to provide access for individuals with disabilities and to improve accessibility? 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. Your ideas, suggestions and feedback are encouraged to inform the process for UMBC's continued participation with the Access Maryland Program, which helps fund these accessibility improvements.
Please RSVP to attend this event via myUMBC. ASL interpretation will be provided. Individuals with disabilities requesting accommodation should contact the organizer, Stephanie Lazarus at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week prior to the event. In all situations, a good faith effort (up until the time of the event), efforts to coordinate and provide reasonable accommodations will be made.

As a quick reminder, students, faculty/staff/employees and visitors with disabilities can be accommodated by UMBC's Student Disability Services and/or the Accessibility Manager upon their request, documentation may be required. The Office of Accessibility & Disability Services which houses these offices has many resources and recommendations for campus users with disabilities.
