Wheelchair ramps and other accessible building entrances are among the first areas to be cleared of snow under Facility Services plans and procedures.

Now that the first snow of the season has flown, she hopes that all members of the campus community will report conditions that may present barriers to accessibility, says Beth Oakley. Director of the Student Success Centre, she chairs the UWindsor Accessible Customer Service Committee, which has launched the If You See It, Report It project.

“Our goal is to engage students, staff and faculty as our eyes across campus,” Oakley says. “We know that grounds crews can’t be everywhere at once, so if they have missed something that poses an unnecessary challenge, we need to bring it to their attention.”
