Accessibility guidelines provide the basic level of access to our campus. We all should strive to consider and incorporate these guidelines in all the content we create and share within our community.

Inclusive Event Planning

It's important to consider how to make your event inclusive for people with disabilities whenever you're planning programs or activities that are open to the public or the university community. By taking a proactive and inclusive approach to event planning, UW-Green Bay can help ensure that everyone has equal access to the event and is treated with respect and dignity.
