Dear Members of the Carleton Community,
As a community, Carleton is committed to continue to build a culture of accessibility. Our focus on accessibility began with the creation of the 24-hour Attendant Services program 32 years ago, through to the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities, the READ Initiative (Research, Education, Accessibility, and Design), the Accessible Career Transitions (ACT) program and the Research and Education in Accessibility, Design and Innovation (READi) program – the first interdisciplinary university accessibility training program in Canada.
Over the course of the year, we will be engaging with the entire community in a collaborative process to develop Carleton’s Coordinated Accessibility Strategy. This strategy will serve as a framework to guide the university’s commitment and continuous improvement as an accessible campus and help to establish Carleton as a Centre of Excellence in Accessibility.
As a first step in this process, we have developed a draft consultation plan outlining the review process. Members of the Carleton community are encouraged to review this consultation plan and provide feedback through our consultation website over the next couple of weeks. As identified in the plan, there will be many opportunities to provide feedback on the strategy.
We look forward to working collaboratively with the entire community in the development of this strategy so that together we can work toward creating a more accessible and inclusive world.
