Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning
The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning works with instructors and academic units at SLU to promote accessible and inclusive courses for all students. It can help educators respond to accommodation needs, design more accessible courses, incorporate more inclusive teaching and assessment methods, and consider the accessibility implications of teaching with technology.
Canvas Accessibility Tools to Support Learners
Within Canvas, the University’s learning management system, there are a number of tools that make course materials more accessible for all learners. Both students and instructors can use the tool to increase accessibility. Learn more about those tools from ITS.
Housing and Residence Life
Saint Louis University places a very high priority on providing reasonable disability
and medical accommodations in our residence halls and on-campus apartments.
Learn More About Housing Accommodations at SLU
Saint Louis University is committed to providing a workplace for our employees where
they can be successful. This includes providing reasonable accommodations in order
for qualified employees or applicants with disabilities to have equal employment opportunities.
The Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity is responsible for SLU's compliance
with the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
If you are an applicant with a disability and need a reasonable accommodation to assist you in the application process, please contact Human Resources at 314-977-2595.
Visitors to Campus
Handicapped parking is available in SLU's parking garages. Should you require transportation from there, SLU's accessible shuttles make stops at both locations. Wheelchairs can be checked out through the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity.
Requests for accommodation for events should go through the sponsoring department or organization.
SLU has several student organizations that focus on physical and sensory accessibility at SLU, including the SLU Beyond Ability, which can provide help with carrying bags and/or pushing a wheelchair as needed. Email SLU Beyond Ability at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
