  • What is a disability?
    Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) the definition of disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a record of such an impairment or being regarded as having such an impairment. The most commonly described disability categories are:
    Physical - affecting mobility or dexterity
    Intellectual - affecting ability to learn
    Psychiatric/Psychological - affecting thinking processes
    Sensory - affecting the ability to hear or see
    Neurological - resulting in the loss of some bodily or mental functions
     
    A temporary health condition may arise from injury, surgery or a short-term medical condition that requires assistance. We are committed to providing accommodations and support to ensure your ability for an equal opportunity to participate in and equal access to the benefits of university life. If you are unsure if your condition would be considered a disability, please come and talk to us.
