What is it? Access UChicago Now is a campaign and an assessment tool that increases awareness about campus accessibility and solicits feedback from members of the campus community about their experiences and perspectives related to access and inclusion of people with disabilities.

Access UChicago Now shared learnings and invited members of the campus community to create solutions at a Town Hall meeting during autumn quarter 2019. Access UChicago Now will share recommendations stemming from this work with the campus community during 2020.
