Information for Faculty & Staff

Student access advisors in the Student Accessibility Centre and Student Success Centre work closely with faculty and staff regarding various aspects of accessibility inside and outside of the classroom.

Advisors gather information and consult with faculty on the implementation of student accessibility plans, which may include accommodations or other forms of support.

To ensure successful implementation of a student’s accessibility plan, advisors may work with colleagues from areas such as Human Rights and Equity Services, Student Health and Wellness, the Ombudsperson, and the Centre for Learning and Teaching.

Advisors also advocate on behalf of, and alongside students to support their transition into and through their academic program. We are all partners in this process.

Student access advisors serve as a resource as you work to incorporate universal design elements and promote inclusivity in your classroom.

Our team is here to support you if you have questions about your role in implementing a student’s accessibility plan.
