NS universities, NSCC release accessibility framework

December 6, 2020

The Council of Nova Scotia University Presidents has announced its endorsement of a new framework for institutional accessibility plans at the province’s universities and college. The framework, which was developed by the Post-Secondary Accessibility Working Group, includes emphasis on awareness and capacity-building; teaching, learning and research; and information and communication. Universities will develop their own action plans and timelines for implementing the new policies. “It’s important that Nova Scotia’s post-secondary leaders take this important blueprint and put it into action so that we can offer our communities full and equitable access to education, employment, and services within our institutions,” said NSCC President Don Bureaux.
