ACCESSIBILITY

Collaborative efforts towards making Concordia an accessible university. 

Accessibility services

Concordia’s departments work together to ensure that everyone is afforded opportunities to work, learn, connect and access services on campus. This includes access to events, activities, services, facilities, premises and buildings, employment, digital structures, teaching and learning resources, and university processes and accommodations.

Accessible classrooms

Accessible teaching and learning practices remove barriers in the classroom, empowering students to reach their full potential while ensuring that learning objectives are met. The following resources can help faculty and students implement accessible teaching and learning:

  • Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL): The CTL works with faculty to advance evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning by supporting and sustaining excellence, inclusion, and opportunity for the entire academic community.

  • ACSD faculty information: Learn about the role of faculty in implementing student accommodations, schedule a consultation with an ACSD advisor, and find resources about accessible educational frameworks such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL). 

  • Student Success Centre: Support network from first-year to graduation. Students can find one-on-one tutors and peer support, professional support and learning tools, career help, workshops, study groups and more.

  • Equity Office: Works to embed equity in all facets of university life through intentional action, affirming and aligning equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility work and initiatives, and amplifying marginalized voices.

Facilities and spaces

To report any facility concern with accessibility, contact Facilities Management.  

Concordia policies and working groups

Accessibility policies at Concordia detail the rights and responsibilities of each member of the university, with the goal of fostering an equitable campus community. 

  • Web accessibility: Concordia is committed to making its website accessible to all Internet users, to ensure that everyone can navigate and access information on the web regardless of disability, device or technical constraint.
