As members of the UCLA community, we all have a responsibility to understand what disabilities are and how people who experience them need support. The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion has created a “Supporting Our Disability Community Toolkit” that offers a guide to campus services, resources, clubs and committees, academic programs, accessibility, ableism, disability justice, disability rights, and much more. To access the Office of EDI’s toolkit, visit their Supporting Our Disability Community Toolkit webpage.
To ensure that disabled students, faculty, and staff have an inclusive and equitable UCLA experience, please visit the Center for Accessible Education (CAE) webpage. It contains disability-related information for students, procedures, and services for the University community, including trainings and workshops for students, staff, and faculty organizations. Also, visit their Resources page for information on planning an accessible event at UCLA, disability etiquette with tips on interacting with people with disabilities, and interactive maps listing UCLA accessible entrances and entrance paths.
For departmental guidance on compliance with Federal and State laws as well as with UC policies, refer to Employee Disability Management Services (EDMS), which has Disability Management Consultants that facilitate the job accommodation process. Visit Insurance & Risk Management’s Disability Management page for more information.
