Greetings From The President:
Florida Atlantic University's commitment to providing access to all students, faculty staff and visitors goes beyond legal requirements to the core belief that it is the right thing to do. We work proactively to dismantle barriers, both physical and procedural. That is why we have created University policies that exceed federal standards. Our goal is to provide user-friendly options at all of FAU's campuses, affording access to people of all abilities.
As an educator, I understand the critical importance of addressing the needs of individuals with disabilities who want to take advantage of the opportunities offered by higher education. As President of FAU, I encourage the entire University community to be aware of the many different types of special needs that exist across the human spectrum, and to work to ensure everyone is afforded equal opportunity. FAU's focus is on recognizing and celebrating the abilities of all people in an environment that fosters inclusiveness.
Mary Jane Saunders, Ph.D.
