Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources

The mission of the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources is to foster equitable experiences for students with disabilities at Saint Louis University. The Center provides academic and housing accommodations for students, supports faculty’s implementation of accommodations within the classroom, and advocates for accessibility campus-wide. 

Guiding Values

The Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources:

  • Recognizes disability through the framework of equity and inclusion. This prioritizes the destigmatization of the image of disability and promotes disability initiatives on Saint Louis University’s campus. 

  • Sees disability as holistic, encompassing the mind, the body, and the spirit. We consider all facets of well-being when meeting with students and determining appropriate and reasonable accommodations.

  • Exists as a resource for the SLU community as an educational and supportive platform to ensure equitable student experiences are present in all areas of student life on campus. 

  • Validates students in their navigation of a disability identity and their right to an accessible campus.

  • Strives to empower students by encouraging a sense of belonging within the disability community and guiding students to self-advocate and invest in their success.


Language

The Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources uses both person-first and disability-first language interchangeably, as we believe both validate students who prefer to identify with disability first (identity), and those who desire to use person-first language. 

Report Campus Accessibility Barriers

If you have encountered an accessibility barrier on campus (physical or otherwise), we ask that you please share detailed information regarding that barrier via a Google form that will be sent to the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources.
