Disability Services: Welcome

Our Commitment

William Jewell College pursues a non-discrimination policy with regards to all education programs and employment.  William Jewell is committed to the full inclusion of students, faculty, and staff in the life of the Jewell Community in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), and the Fair Housing Act. 

Under Section 504 and the ADAAA, a person has a disability if he/she:

  • Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities.  These activities can include but are not limited to walking, standing, seeing, eating, speaking, hearing, sitting, breathing, reading, learning, performing manual tasks, caring for oneself.
  • Has a record or history of such impairment; or
  • Is regarded as having such impairment.

To prevent discrimination on the basis of disability, reasonable and appropriate accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids and services are determined on a case-by-case basis for otherwise qualified individuals who have a demonstrated need for these services and can provide appropriate documentation. 

The Office of Disability Services

The Office of Disability Services is the place to start for all individuals with disabilities (faculty, staff, and students) who wish to apply for accommodations. These accommodations can include but are not limited to learning, housing, dining, and workplace accommodations.  William Jewell College has a clearly articulated procedure as to who holds the documentation of disability, what steps individuals must take to declare their need for disability-related accommodations, and how that information is communicated to those having a legitimate medical and/or educational interest in the individual. Instructions on requesting accommodations, the application process, and other important information can be accessed under the policies and guidelines to the accommodation process below.
