Disability Resource Services


Disability Resources

EAC works with 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

 

Our Goals

  • Provide reasonable accommodations and support services to qualified individuals
  • Promote students’ educational and career goals
  • Offer training and support to faculty and staff to ensure equal access

Goals for Students:
