Disability Services is an office within the department of Student Services. It provides access for students through consultation with faculty, staff, and other campus departments.
Resurrection University complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the principles of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended. It is our policy to provide individuals with disabilities full and equal enjoyment of the services, facilities, and privileges of Resurrection University. Resurrection University does not screen out, exclude, expel, limit, or otherwise discriminate against an individual seeking admission as a student, or an individual enrolled as a student, based on one’s disability. Resurrection University promotes an environment of respect and support for individuals with disabilities.
An individual with a disability is one who has (a) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities (such as walking, standing, seeing, speaking, hearing, sitting, breathing, reading, learning, thinking, performing manual tasks, taking care of oneself, or the operation of a major bodily function); (b) a record of such impairment; or (c) is regarded as having such an impairment.
Resurrection University will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations include reasonable modifications to the University’s policies, practices and procedures where necessary for individuals with disabilities, unless doing so would fundamentally alter the nature of our program.
Examples of some of the reasonable accommodations Resurrection University makes available include: Academic/Program Modifications; Access to Facilities; Classroom Access; Communication Access; Exam Accommodations; Information Referral; Priority Registration; and Parking.
If you have a question about Disability Services or would like to apply for accommodations under the ADA, please contact Esther Wallen, Director of Student Development at Esther.Wallen@resu.edu, or Mallory Martin, Student Development Assistant at Mallory.Martin@resu.edu.
