Tina Lowe Access & Lifelong Learning Centre, University College Dublin
I am a graduate of University College Dublin, Ireland, where I have worked since 2008. I am the Campus Accessibility Officer in the Access and Lifelong Learning Centre. Here my role is to work with the university on making the campus universally accessible so that everyone can access all the buildings and access and enjoy the external campus and its amenities.
As a blind guide dog owner my personal lived experience has enabled me to have an insight on what it is like to navigate our environment, and this insight gives me the impetus and drive to assist UCD to improve accessibility.
