Committee on Access and Accommodations

The University of Connecticut is committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunities and achieving full participation for all members of the University community, including persons with disabilities.  The University of Connecticut Committee on Access and Accommodations focuses on assuring that the University as a whole is positioned to meet this goal, including regional campuses, the School of Law, and the School of Social Work.  The Committee’s primary focus is to promote ongoing assessment and awareness of goals, needs, and requirements related to access and accommodations at the University.  It considers a range of compliance issues with the ADA and its amendments and other legislation related to disabilities and accommodations.  It serves to facilitate coordination across all of the units and offices that have a role in assuring appropriate access and accommodation in University services and activities.  The Committee also serves to continuously improve the University’s efforts to ensure equal access and provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities by identifying best practices and developing approaches to implement them, and devising and facilitating solutions to problems.  If you have concerns related to access and accommodations, please contact the Deputy ADA Coordinator, Josh Rucker, at (860) 486-2943.
