Disability access and inclusion plan

At Curtin, we have a long history of commitment to equal opportunity in education and employment.

In 1997, we were the first WA university to develop a voluntary Disability Services Plan. We lodged our first five-year Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) in 2007, and in 2022 we launched our fourth DAIP, the DAIP 2022-2030.

Our DAIP 2022-2030 is a long-term plan that encourages us to provide an accessible and inclusive experience to our diverse community of students, staff and visitors.
