Welcome to Accessible Learning Services

Accessible Learning Services staff at Acadia University is committed to providing a supportive, inclusive, and welcoming on-campus environment for all students, staff, and faculty. Our main goal is to facilitate access supports and resources that will maximize opportunities to a successful and meaningful experience at Acadia University.

To help promote accessible learning on campus, we:

  • Help students develop individualized support plans to address classroom accommodation concerns.
  • Help students with disabilities access expert support services.
  • Organize workshops for faculty, staff, and community members to promote awareness about disability and accommodation.
  • Work with faculty to develop, and implement reasonable student-centred classroom policies that promote equality, and inclusivity in the classroom.
  • Organize workshops that contribute to student, faculty, and staff academic, and personal skills development.
  • Organize workshops for students that highlight strategies for coping with transition from high school to university, and from university to the workforce.
  • Administer academic alert, and mentoring programs to increase first-year student retention
