Our vision

We work to create structures, supports, procedures, strategic alliances and partnerships such that the academic experience of an ACSD registered student 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 complement of skills and abilities that they possess, and where every aspect of the university is accessible to all students.

Our values

  • 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 effective design is essential for achieving inclusion and full participation. 
  • We believe in Universal Design for Learning.
  • We believe in the Social Model of Disability in that people are disabled by barriers in society and the environment, not by their impairments.
  • We believe creating usable, equitable, sustainable, and inclusive environments is a shared responsibility.
