We value our faculty and staff’s pursuit of successful educational experiences for our students at BCIT, and the central role that you have in connecting students with campus services, such as ours.
Accessibility Services promotes access to education and works to facilitate equal educational opportunities for students with disabilities. This is accomplished through direct support to students and through collaboration and consultation with instructional and administrative faculty.
Do you wonder if one of your students is challenged by a disability and uncertain as to how you can help? We invite you to contact us to discuss any issues that may arise and to help you problem-solve.
There is no perfect formula for alleviating all the barriers confronting individuals with disabilities. However, if each student’s needs are considered individually, then the student will encounter an atmosphere that is conducive to educational growth.
