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.
Why Our Work Is Important
