This website serves as a resource for students, faculty and staff to learn about and facilitate access to the services and support available to them. We also want to hear from you! If you find any challenges in accessing your courses or any university program, we want to hear about it and fix it. It will take all of us working together to ensure that FIU is a place where everyone can thrive.
Florida International University values a diverse and inclusive community and recognizes the responsibility to provide equitable access to courses and campuses. While we are committed to ensuring adherence to various federal, state and local laws and university policy [the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973], this work started prior to the launch of the accessibility project and has been woven into the fabric of who we are as a university — truth, freedom, respect, responsibility and excellence. We are excited to continue this work and are grateful that you are on this journey with us.Nicole Attong, LMHC Interim ADA and Accessibility Coordinator
