A Commitment to Inclusion

Grinnell College's commitment to creating a diverse, multicultural campus community includes many students, faculty, and staff with disabilities.

Our goal is an environment that allows people of all abilities do their best work. Using universal design principals, we try to remove as many barriers as possible, and make accommodations for disabilities when needed.

We provide accommodations and support for Grinnellians with disabilities such as learning, psychiatric, physical, or sensory disabilities. We offer many services to all students that can be of help to those with disabilities, including mentoring, technology, academic skills training, and career services.

Grinnellians — whether they are students, faculty, or staff — continue to share and learn from each other and the latest research about the different abilities each of us bring, and how we can create an accessible, supportive environment for everyone.
