Message for faculty and staff
Whatever our individual roles at FIU, an important part of our collective mission is facilitating learning for all students of all backgrounds, interests and abilities. As faculty and staff we all play a role in ensuring that FIU is an inclusive place of learning, where no student is left out of opportunities to thrive because they are not accessible to them.
In this website, you will find information and resources to increase accessibility of your documents, courses and programs. Our goal. Is to incorporate universal design – incorporating elements that are necessary for some and god for all - into everything we do so that there is less need for individual accommodation.
Join the effort to expand accessibility and redefine disability at FIU.
