Disability Resources

EAC works with admitted and prospective students with disabilities, faculty, and staff to remove barriers through design and accommodations in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. We recognize disability as an aspect of diversity and promote a culture of inclusion.
