The Office of Disability Services

We are 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. Our goal is to provide support and resources to ensure an accessible and welcoming environment for individuals with disabilities and to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations in the areas of learning/academics, housing, dining and the workplace.

How do I request accommodations?

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.
