Roles and responsibilities

Responsibility for meeting the needs of disabled students is shared across the collegiate University with the Disability Advisory Service, the colleges, the departments and the Proctors taking lead roles. All activities relating to provision for disabled students are undertaken in the interests of working towards a common goal of excellence in accessibility and student experience.

Therefore, staff should endeavour to be proactive in considering the needs of all of their students and adopt a collaborative approach to ensure that the guiding principles of the Common Framework are upheld and that reasonable adjustments are implemented wherever necessary. All employees of the collegiate University have a duty to comply with the Equality Act and should be aware of their obligations under the Act.
