Curtin's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

Curtin is required by a 2004 amendment of the Western Australian Disability Services Act 1993 to develop a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).  Curtin is required to report on the progress of its plan in its Annual Report and in a report to the Disability Services Commission in July each year. A full review of the DAIP must be undertaken every five years.

The aim of the DAIP is to guide the University’s work to ensure equitable access to its buildings, facilities, information, services and events for all people with disability.

The seven major outcomes of the DAIP are:
  1. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and events organised by, Curtin.
  2. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to access Curtin's buildings and facilities.
  3. People with disability receive information from Curtin in a format that will enable them to access the information as readily as other people are able to access it.
  4. People with disability receive the same level and quality of service from Curtin staff as other people receive from Curtin staff.
  5. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to make complaints to Curtin.
  6. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to participate in any public consultation by Curtin.
  7. People with disability have the same opportunities as other people to participate in employment at Curtin.

Curtin’s DAIP includes an additional outcome area (number 7) relating to the employment of people with disability.  Curtin is working in partnership with the Commonwealth Governments National Disability Recruitment Coordinator scheme (NDRC) to implement disability inclusive recruitment practices. Curtin aims to provide more employment opportunities for people with disability.  Curtin has a Staff Disability Advisor to specifically address any concerns that staff with disability may experience that is related to their employment.
