The Office for Accessibility and Gender Equity
At the Office for Accessibility and Gender Equity, we are committed to ensuring equal access to University programs and activities as well as our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion based on the protected classes of disability and sex, inclusive of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Our office provides a number of equity-related activities; these include facilitating accommodations, providing consultation, education, and training workshops; and helping to ensure the university responds appropriately, effectively, and equitably to issues of sexual-based misconduct or relationship violence. We also lead institutional efforts regarding; the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title IX of the Education Amendments.
We are committed to building an environment that is healthy, inclusive, and welcoming for all who study, work, or visit the University of Florida. We are dedicated to building a culture of care and putting an end to gender-based discrimination and violence. Our goal is for every Gator to have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to develop, maintain, and promote healthy relationships. Join us and be the change in the Gator Nation.
