About Us

ACCESS matters.

Purpose: We envision UCF to be a fully accessible campus and inclusive environment for people with disabilities.

We do this by:

  • Acknowledging disability as an aspect of human diversity;
  • Cultivating awareness of the environment’s disabling barriers;
  • Collaborating on and proactively facilitating accessible environments and experiences;
  • Educating faculty and staff to create and maintain access in their spheres of influence;
  • Shifting to an inclusive-minded attitude;
  • Supplementing with reasonable accommodations as a last resort measure to ensure access.

Why We Do What We Do

At SAS, we believe the environment and the intersection of a person with the environment creates more of a disability barrier than the individual’s personal diagnosis or situation. And each of us contributes to the environment. Examples of environment design include:

  • Physical building or office space access and layout;
  • Office policies and procedures for accessing resources available through an office, program or resource;
  • Course teaching methods and learning assessment methods;
  • TV and online videos and whether or not they are captioned;
  • Personal attitudes and general awareness of society’s contribution to disability;

Our goal is to encourage proactive consideration of the way in which environments are created and in how we, as a campus community, think about disability. Accessibility is not an SAS matter. It is a UCF matter. Better design, even if as simple as a more open attitude, can create better access and more inclusion for everyone. Our vision is that everyone would ask: What is the real barrier here? What can I do to address the barrier?
