The University of Glasgow is committed to disability equality and ensuring all staff, students and visitors have a positive experience of the work, learning, teaching and research environment. We recognise the social model of disability and strive to ensure this model is the basis for our activities and interventions in this area.
To support this aim the University has appointed a senior manager as the Disability Equality Champion, currently Professor Frank Coton (Vice-Principal for Learning and Teaching). Our Disability Equality Champion promotes and raises awareness around disability equality issues. He also acts as chair of the Disability Equality Group, and feedback to the Equality and Diversity Strategy Committee, the Principal and other senior managers.
The University provides a service for students with disabilities which can offer a wide range of specialist support, provision and guidance. If you are a student or a potential student of the University, please contact the Disability Service to find out more information.
The University also provides support to disabled staff. Information on this service is available from this leaflet, and also through the link in the left hand navigation panel;
The University welcomed the opportunity to develop a Disability Equality Scheme and Action Plan to ensure we implement legislation across campus.
