The Disability Action Plan (DAP) articulates the University's commitment to meeting its obligations and responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act (1992).  The DAP has detailed strategies to consider ways in which people with disabilities will be assisted in the areas of education, employment and accommodation so that they have an equitable access to these areas of public life.  The DAP also details monitoring and reporting processes.
