Our mission & statistics

Mission Statement:

The Access Centre for Students with Disabilities reduces barriers to academic participation in the University, raises awareness about students with disabilities and engages in community-building to further promote an inclusive environment at Concordia.

Vision Statement:

The ACSD is working to create structures, supports, procedures and strategic alliances & partnerships such that the academic experience of a student registered with the ACSD closely mirrors the academic experience of a non-ACSD registered student of the University.  Our vision is a University community where students are recognized for the unique compliment of skills and abilities that they possess, and where every aspect of the University is accessible to all its students.

Values Statement:

  • We believe human variation is natural and vital in the development of dynamic communities.
  • We believe disability is a social/political construct that includes people with a variety of conditions who are bound together by common experiences.
  • We believe inclusion and full participation are a matter of social justice.
  • We believe good design is essential for achieving inclusion and full participation.
  • We believe creating usable, equitable, sustainable, and inclusive environments is a shared responsibility.
