Office of Accessibility Services

The Mission of the Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) is to create and maintain a zero-barrier living and learning environment through collaboration with faculty, students, and staff such that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential and engage with and contribute to their personal and professional communities.

In accordance with equal education opportunity laws, Mount Ida College provides reasonable accommodations for students whose disabilities limit their participation in academic programs for which they are qualified. The Office of Accessibility Services is here to serve as a resource, support, and advocate for students with disabilities at Mount Ida College.

Mount Ida College is committed to providing students with disabilities access to the programs, services, and activities of the College as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973), and the Americans with Disabilities Act As Amended (2008).  Creating an optimal learning environment is a unique and collaborative process. We work closely with faculty to ensure that the academic integrity of each course remains intact, while preserving equal access to all course content and materials for all qualified students at the same time.

The Office of Accessibility Services also strives to foster partnerships with faculty, staff and students, promote disability awareness throughout the Mount Ida community, and provide guidance regarding College policies and procedures pertaining to the rights and privileges of persons with disabilities.
