Welcome to the Accessibility Resource Center at MWSU!
The Accessibility Resource Center leads the University in its commitment to recognizing disability as a valued aspect of diversity by framing equal access and equal opportunity as matters of social justice.
Goals Supporting Our Mission
We work to remove those barriers existing in the university environment which prevent students with disabilities from having equal access to the same opportunities readily available to their peers. When necessary, we coordinate reasonable accommodations for students in order to remove such barriers. An accommodation is considered unreasonable if it causes a fundamental alteration to the nature of a program and/or imposes an undue administrative or financial burden on the University.
We are partnering with the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD), Project Refocus, Center for Academic Standards (CAS) and Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) to create an academic environment where students with disabilities will find that access, opportunity and inclusion are woven into everything we do and the need for individual accommodations is minimized.
Making Contact with the ARC
Having a disability is a unique experience for each individual. Some students discover the college environment has very little impact on their disability while other students encounter considerable barriers to pursuing their education. And while there is absolutely no requirement for students with disabilities to disclose to the University that they have a disability, we are here if you need us. If you are experiencing any barriers that prevent you from having the same opportunities as your peers, click on the Information for Students and Parents tab in the menu to the left.
