The Unit employs Disability and Learning Access Officers (DLAO) whose role it is to:
- Negotiate tailored services to meet the individual needs of students with a disability.
- Participate in policy development in relation to the University's obligations under anti discrimination legislation.
- Raise community awareness about disability and access issues.
- Ensure that the academic standards and inherent requirements of a program or course are not compromised.
