William Jewell College pursues a non-discrimination policy with regards to all education programs and employment. William Jewell is committed to the full inclusion of students, faculty, and staff in the life of the Jewell Community in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (including the ADA Amendments Act of 2008) and the Fair Housing Act.

Under Section 504 and the ADA/ADAAA, a person has a disability if he/she:

  • Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities.  These activities can include but are not limited to walking, standing, seeing, eating, speaking, hearing, sitting, breathing, reading, learning, performing manual tasks, caring for oneself.
  • Has a record or history of such impairment; or
  • Is regarded as having such impairment.

Students, Faculty, and Staff
To prevent discrimination on the basis of disability, reasonable and appropriate accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids and services are determined on a case-by-case basis for otherwise qualified individuals who have a demonstrated need for these services and can provide appropriate documentation. Information concerning eligibility for accommodations, required documentation, and the application process for students, faculty, and staff is set forth in William Jewell’s Policies and Guidelines for Individuals with Disabilities at www.jewell.edu/disabilityservices.

Any additional requests or questions regarding programs, services, and activities accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities, should be directed to the 504 and Compliance Coordinator:
