Norwich University is committed to supporting all students in their academic and co-curricular endeavors, and guests to our campus.
To this end, Norwich complies with applicable state and federal laws, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states, "No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States ... shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance..." The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as Amended (ADA) extends some of these stated provisions.
The mission in providing the necessary resources is to create an accessible and inclusive learning environment where disability is recognized as an aspect of diversity.
The goals and objectives for those needing resources are to:
- promote and facilitate access through outreach and training, collaborative partnerships, innovative programs, and proactive solutions across the campus
- create inclusive environments by engaging and supporting the campus community in evaluating accessibility
- consult regarding the reduction of barriers for persons with disabilities
- ensure the effective delivery of accommodations
