The CAE Advisory Board provides a way for CAE to receive direct input from the UCLA community in order to:

1. Understand questions and concerns from faculty about providing accommodations;
2. Engage students, faculty, and instructors in improving the accommodation process at UCLA;
3. Help CAE better meet the needs of UCLA students with disabilities;
4. Provide a space for advocacy and leadership skill development for UCLA students with interests in disabilities;
5. Identify challenging accessibility issues and strategize with the Board to expand positive impact across campus to enhance the campus climate for the disability community at UCLA.
