Diversity Summit Highlights

USF continues to build a vibrant system focused on leveraging its talents in academics, research and community engagement. We are impacting our region in countless and significant ways through our commitment to student success, focus on global connections, research and innovation, and drive to lead as a major economic engine and partner for a sustainable future.

The Summit showcased over 8 workshops, with 30+ panelists sharing all the many ways in which our university and community are powerfully emerging in their influence on the future of our region, state and country. Guests came together for an educational and motivational celebration of our successes and discussion about our future.

The USF Diversity Summit is a system-wide event hosted by the President and attended by our faculty, staff and students. Each year, we explore diversity and inclusion topics that are important to both our internal and external communities through workshops, keynote speakers and other activities.

Welcome to USF’s UNISEX restroom map, cross-listed with ADA accessible restrooms. This map was developed with the support of several campus groups including the Committee on Issues of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, the Transgender student group, and others who have labored to bring awareness to a needed resource on campus. A full list is included in the PDF file. We believe that this information will bring awareness to USF’s welcoming and inclusive campus and how these changes will improve the opportunity to focus on learning and working, as we continue to support an environment organized to provide basic human needs for everyone at USF.

USF Minimum Electronic and Web Accessibility Standards (MEWAS)

The University of South Florida is committed to creating websites, electronic course content, and on-line learning environments that are inclusive and accessible to all users. This explicitly includes users with disabilities who employ assistive technologies or other alternative means to access our electronic or web information.

USF has assured compliance with both Section 504 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which requires that all public institutions be accessible to persons with disabilities. Section 508 requires that the University make its websites accessible to users with visual, hearing, mobility and cognitive disabilities.

Developers throughout the USF System should take some time to review the documentation which outlines the standards and best practices for their implementations.
