- Providing institution-wide advisement, consultation, and training on disability awareness and other disability-related topics.
- Collaborating with all LAPU departments to identify and remove barriers to accessibility.
- Providing universal and inclusive design of all educational materials.
- Complying with legal and regulatory requirements.
