Services and resources for those seeking information on disability and accessibility on campus.
Concordia University is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive, and accessible experience for all staff, faculty, students, and visitors. Our commitment is realized through powerful cross-campus partnerships, and requires everyone to play a role in preventing, identifying, and removing barriers to accessibility in all aspects of university life.
The Access Centre for Students with Disabilities (ACSD) provides academic accommodations and services to students with disabilities to promote equal access to education.
Accommodating employees with disabilities is an important part of the University’s commitment to an inclusive, supportive, and accessible workplace. Take a moment to review the procedures related to workplace accessibility for employees, or email us for questions or information.
The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) advances evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning by supporting and sustaining excellence, inclusion, and access to opportunity for the entire academic community. Consider these resources on Universal Design for Learning, enabling captioning on Zoom, and creating accessible documents.
