Disabilities Policy

It is the guiding philosophy of Lindenwood University to make our facilities, programs, and classes as accessible to individuals with disabilities as practical. In instances where a room or building is not easily accessible, it may be necessary to bring the service or class to the student. It is the responsibility of the student to advise Academic Services when special arrangements are needed. If personnel are unable to accommodate a request for special arrangements, the request will be forwarded to the vice president for Student Development for further measures.

The university provides reasonable accommodations to students with aural, visual, and other impairments that might hamper a student’s reaching his or her potential achievement level.

Students who need assistance or accommodations regarding certified disabilities should contact the Lindenwood University’s Disabilities Services Office.

Lindenwood University is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The University complies with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and other legislation, as amended, including the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and other legislation which prohibits discrimination in employment and access to educational programs because of race, color, national origin, sex, age or physical handicap. Lindenwood University is committed to a policy of non-discrimination and dedicated to providing a positive discrimination-free educational and work environment. Any kind of discrimination, harassment and/or intimidation may be defined as any attempt on the part of individuals, groups and recognized campus organizations to deny an individual or group those rights, freedoms or opportunities available to all members of the university community. The University is committed to meeting the full intent and spirit of the anti-discrimination laws, not merely the minimum letter of the law. Inquiries concerning the application of Lindenwood University’s policy on nondiscrimination should be directed to the Student Development Office or Executive Offices of the university.
