The Accessibility Services Department has been designated by the University of La Verne to ensure access for all students with disabilities to all academic programs and university resources. Types of disabilities include medical, physical, psychological, attention-deficit, and/or learning disabilities, and reasonable accommodations are provided to minimize the effects of a student’s disability and to maximize their potential for success.
The mission of Accessibility Services is to collaborate with students and campus partners in creating an equitable and inclusive educational experience for students with disabilities. Accessibility Services is committed to assuring that all students are able to fully participate in the University’s curricular and co-curricular programs. We emphasize growth and individual achievement and address this goal through the provision of academic accommodations, support services, self-advocacy, skill training, and disability-related educational programming for the university community.
In order to obtain services from Accessibility Services, a student must submit appropriate documentation of their disability from a qualified professional (i.e. a psychiatrist, psychologist, and/or physician). The Director of Accessibility Services will provide information on the types of documentation required and referrals to qualified professionals upon request.
