Students with disability

If you are a student with disability, Deakin University's Disability Resource Centre can offer support to help you to get the most out of your study. We can help provide adjustments to reduce the impact of your disability on your study, and advise you about working with other people around the University to meet your needs.

Deakin University is committed to supporting students with disability to enter and succeed at university through promoting inclusive practices and providing individual support.

Staff members with disability

Deakin University values staff with disability and the skills, experiences and perspectives that you can bring to University life.

Deakin University's culture respects, values and actively pursues the benefits of diversity across the organisation so that staff have opportunities to reach their full potential and participate in all aspects of University life.

We are committed to ensuring that our policies and practices meet your needs so that you can realise your full potential in the workplace.

Deakin University first developed a Disability Action Plan in 2000. It is structured around three overarching aims:

  • Aspiration - People with disability (students, staff and community members) want to engage with Deakin University and know they will be included and supported.
  • Access and experience - People with disability are included and supported, and can engage on equal terms during their experience at Deakin University.
  • Achievement - People with disability can realise their full potential in their study, employment or other engagement with Deakin University.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
