Communication, feedback and complaints

Communication to the University community

Deakin's Disability Action Plan is published on the Deakin University web site, as accessible pdf (99 KB) and Word (118 KB) documents and is available in hard copy. It has been submitted to the Australian Human Rights Commission as a web-based plan.

The Disability Action Plan has been officially launched at the 2011 Deakin University Social Inclusion and Innovation Conference and will be promoted in the student and staff news portals on the Deakin University web site, in the 'Inclusion News' staff e-newsletter, in other Deakin news publications and in an email from the Vice-Chancellor to all students and staff.
