The University of Guelph is committed to eliminating discrimination against individuals with disabilities and to creating and maintaining a barrier-free University community. Our goal is to ensure accessibility in our services, products and facilities--for students, staff, faculty and visitors--in a way that respects the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities.

Accessibility at OpenEd

OpenEd has gathered a number of resources on making education accessible, including early work on Universal Instructional Design. Visit our Accessible Education page to learn more about these resources.

The course design and development team at OpenEd has also created Universal Design - Best Practices for Online Learning, a self-directed resource with practical tips to help course developers and course design teams apply Universal Design principles in the Design, Development, Delivery and Evaluation of online courses.

The Office of Diversity and Human Rights (DHR)

The Office of Diversity and Human Rights (DHR) monitors compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and supports the work of the University AODA steering committee. DHR coordinates efforts to eliminate existing barriers on campus and to evaluate the University's policies and procedures through a comprehensive accessibility lens to make sure we're getting it right.

DHR is your campus resource for information on initiatives, policies, educational resources and services relating to accessibility on campus.
