Accessibility Action Plan 2018-2020

Accessibility Action Plan

Western Sydney University is committed to providing a vibrant and inclusive place of learning and employment, we work hard to create opportunities for excellence and equality. The University highly values the diversity of our students and staff. We therefore strive to be flexible, accessible and supportive of all University community members, including those with disability and carers of people with disability.

Western Sydney University strongly supports the aims and provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act (1992) and Disability Discrimination Act Education Standards (2005). Our latest Accessibility Action Plan 2018-2020 (Opens in a new window) therefore articulates the active measures the University will take to prevent disability discrimination across the institution and the Greater Western Sydney region.

Students with disability (including chronic medical conditions and mental illness) seeking study-related adjustments or supports will find assistance at the University’s Disability Service. Staff with disability (including chronic medical conditions and mental illness) wishing to obtain work-related adjustments or supports can request assistance via the Office of Equity & Diversity. The University also hosts the National Disability Coordination Officer program, working with community partners across Greater Western Sydney to improve the employment and post-secondary education outcomes for people with disabilities of all ages.
