Accessible Wayfinding March 23, 2020 - 10:30pm

The Nanaimo campus is beautiful, yet complex. Important accessibility features such as powered doors and ramps are not always readily visible and easy to find. 

Additionally, accessible routes can be difficult to find amongst the maze of stairs. 

The VIU Accessible Wayfinding Initiative was started in 2019 to mitigate these issues. 

About the UAC March 23, 2020 - 10:06pm

The Universal Access Committee (UAC) was founded in 2017. We are committed to removing boundaries at VIU, both small and large.  

To date, the UAC has raised over 2 million dollars that is being used for accessibility upgrades on campus.
