Goals

  • Enhance the ability of students with disabilities to understand how that disability affects the student in an educational setting, and with this understanding learn how to be a better self-advocate.
  • Communicate effectively with pre-admission students and their parents, giving open and honest evaluations of what accommodations might be available to each student.
  • Continually review relevant court and Office for Civil Rights rulings concerning persons with disabilities, as well as reviewing best practice models by maintaining membership in professional organizations and subscriptions to peer-reviewed journals and other relevant publications.
  • Provide leadership that ensures disability is recognized as a rich part of the diversity fabric on campus by providing information, education, and consultation to the entire Randolph-Macon community.
