Welcome to CDAD!

The Commission on Disability Access and Design's vision is a university community free from physical and attitudinal barriers to services, programs and activities through Universal Design.

CDAD works with the university community to create a welcoming, supportive and inclusive university environment. The commission supports and reaffirms NAU's stated commitment to affirmative action and diversity.

Come join us for our monthly meetings every third Wednesday of the month from 12-1:30!
