Ambrose University celebrates diversity and welcomes the contributions, experiences and full participation of students experiencing disabilities as valued members of the community. Academic accommodations are provided to Ambrose students with disabilities in accordance with the Alberta Human Rights Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Provision of academic accommodation does not lower the academic standards of the university nor remove the need for evaluation and the need to meet essential learning outcomes.
The primary role of Accessibility Services is to serve students experiencing disabilities who request academic accommodation. By helping create an accessible learning environment that encourages full participation in academic courses Accessibility Services ensures that each student has equal access to educational success. Reasonable academic accommodation plans are tailored to the individual student, are flexible, and are determined by reviewing relevant documentation as well as considering the barriers that exist for the student within the unique environment of a post-secondary institution. Students with a disability who would like to request academic accommodation are encouraged to contact Accessibility Services as early as possible to register and ensure appropriate planning for any needs that may include setting up academic accommodations or applying for funding for disability-related services. Staff then meet with students to determine areas to facilitate success, and if an accommodation plan is required, ensure those accommodations are put in place by working with faculty.
