Accessibility Commission

The Accessibility Commission is a group of campus representatives, including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students from different areas across campus, that makes accessibility related recommendations to Clemson University's Council for Diversity and Inclusion. Each member has a passion for making sure that students, employees, and visitors with a diverse range of abilities have the tools and environments needed to be successful. Meetings with the combined group occur four times a year with the majority of the work being completed by subcommittees who work in specialized areas.
