Committee Charge


Established in January 2022, the principal purpose of CACDI is to examine issues and improve conditions with regard to disability infrastructure, policies, and climate affecting our UCR community:

  • To monitor existing policies, procedures, programs, physical spaces, and digital spaces for accessibility and disability inclusion

  • To disseminate information on faculty research and best practices to share across campus and community

  • To measure progress toward goals of not only accessibility, but a culture of inclusion and belonging

  • To identify model  programs  or  activities  and  support system-wide  implementation

  • To recommend changes that will continue to improve access to campus programs, activities, scholarship, and opportunities

  • To liaise with system-wide accessibility and disability inclusion committees


Did you know that anyone can submit a service request? Even students can when they see something needing to be fixed. 
Elevator out? Automatic doors not working? Blocked accessible pathway?
Put in a service request. It is a short form asking where the issue is and your information. 
For more urgent concerns, contact Facilities at 951-827-4214 or
For a weekend or holiday emergencies, contact Central Plant at 951-827-4677
