The DIAP 2022-2025 applies to University policy, practice and delivery of services.
The UNSW Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) 2022-2025 commits the University to removing the barriers people with disability face when it comes to acessing and succeeding in tertiary education. It also aims to encourage the employment of people with disability at all levels of the University, both in the academic and non-academic spheres.
In doing this, the UNSW DIAP supports UNSW's Strategy and the Division of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Policy. It also gives effect to the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2006, and ensures UNSW meets federal and state disability and discrimination laws and regulations.

It focused on making UNSW’s built infrastructure and digital systems accessible for both students and staff with disability.
