Disability Liaison Unit
The Disability Liaison Unit (DLU) has primary responsibility for facilitating the participation of students with disabilities. This is done primarily by working with students to identify reasonable adjustments that promote opportunities and independence in the pursuit of academic success. The DLU also works closely with all members of the University community to progress the University's commitment to equity and inclusion.
