Accessibility Services Mission

Learn how accessibility services are coordinated to provide equal opportunity for student participation in campus life.


University of Maryland Global Campus recognizes students on the merits of their abilities rather than their disabilities.

At UMGC, our primary goal is commitment to our students' success and maintenance of an educational partnership between students, faculty, staff, and administration.

Accessibility Services recognizes that disability reflects diverse characteristics and experiences and is an aspect of diversity integral to society and the university experience. In alignment with the university's core goals, the mission of Accessibility Services is to coordinate support services that provide equal opportunity for students to participate in all aspects of the educational environment. Through our initiatives, students can participate in UMGC's programs and services while adhering to the university's academic standards.

In advancing this mission, Accessibility Services seeks to provide the best accommodations and services possible to qualified students in the following ways:

  • Arrange academic adjustments and accommodations as mandated under the amended Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
  • Work collaboratively with students, faculty, staff and community members to create diverse learning environments that are usable, equitable and sustainable.
  • Educate and provide consultation to UMGC faculty, staff and administrators to promote awareness and sensitivity toward individuals with disabilities.
  • Provide students with disabilities the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to effectively advocate for themselves in the university community.
