Disability Navigators

The Disability Navigator Pilot Program

Fostering a model of equity and justice, the Disability Navigator Pilot Program was created to identify and address workplace issues that impact LSA employees with disabilities. A key goal is to design a program model that can be recreated in U-M’s other colleges and schools. A general survey indicates this may be the first program in U.S. higher education to focus explicitly on the needs of employees with disabilities.

The program has been given a three year window to: 

  • Address culture and climate as it relates to LSA employees with disabilities; 
  • Define and simplify pathways to disability-related accommodations for LSA employees; 
  • Support efforts to increase the accessibility of LSA’s digital and physical environments; 
  • Raise awareness about LSA’s disability community;
  • Oversee the centralization of disability services and resources for LSA employees; and, 
  • Respond to other disability equity issues within LSA.
