Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2023-2026

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) outlines a multi-year program of activities to reduce and remove barriers experienced by staff and students with disability, and carers of people with disability.

Achieving the plan requires that the whole University community makes a collective and ongoing effort: actively creating an environment in which people with disability can feel confident, empowered and supported to participate on an equitable basis in University life.

It's a step toward achieving the University’s aspiration to become a champion and an exemplar of disability inclusion and accessibility.

The plan is contextualised by a comprehensive legislative framework (Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth.)Disability Standards for Education 2005 (Cth.)) and driven by a social justice imperative. It also aligns with the Advancing Melbourne institutional strategy and Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2030.
