We are here to help students succeed both in and out of the classroom while at Mercy.
无障碍办公室 collaborates with and empowers students who have disabilities in order to coordinate support services, reasonable accommodations and programs that enable equal access to education and college live.
ACCESS serves as a resource to other departments and colleagues and works to provide regular training opportunities, 深思熟虑, 就平等机会进行磋商, 合规, 提供公平的服务, 通用设计. 另外, ACCESS provides opportunities and resources that will facilitate the development of self-advocacy, 自我效能感, 以及学生克服残疾可能带来的障碍的适应技能.
学生 may experience different levels of distress across various areas of their lives. The type and amount of distress they are experiencing will require different actions and resources. The 红色的文件夹 initiative is a guide to help those who interact with students to recognize and be able to respond effectively and refer students in distress to the available resources we have at Mercy 大学.
- Ask for the things you need, and ask questions about the things you don’t know.
