VIU Campus Development

Universal Access at VIU

As part of Campus Development, the Universal Access Team removes barriers at VIU  both small and large  striving to create an accessible, inclusive built environment for all. This team creates big-picture plan that prioritizes the needs for accessibility improvements, pursues grant opportunities for those improvements, educates and builds awareness on accessibility, and works closely with the Universal Access Committee and Accessibility Services in serving the diverse needs of students, employees and visitors. A key function of this area is managing accommodations to the physical environment for VIU students, faculty and staff with disabilities.
