Meredith College values the diversity of its community and promotes inclusivity for all students in their endeavors. We recognize disability as an integral aspect of diversity. Disability Services collaborates with students, faculty, staff, and community members to create usable, equitable, inclusive and sustainable living and working environments on campus. We increase awareness and access through training, partnerships, and accommodations.

Disability Services is spearheading the effort to expand our understanding of accessibility. We aim to broaden our focus from the needs of individual students to making the learning, working and living environments of Meredith College accessible to all. We believe that by sharing the responsibility among the campus community to remove barriers to physical, curricular and web environments as much as possible, everyone at Meredith College will benefit.

Disability Services collaborates with students with disabilities to encourage independence and self-advocacy so all students may accomplish their educational and personal goals. Disability Services assists students with disabilities to receive accommodations based on the student’s experience and current documentation. We rely on students to let us know whether they would like to initiate contact with our office and begin the process of being certified so they may receive accommodations, which are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and tailored to each student.
