ACCESS TO EDUCATION: SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
Grinnell College is dedicated to educating students whose achievements show a high level of intellectual capacity, initiative, and maturity. Every year, this highly qualified group of students includes people with physical or psychological challenges or learning disabilities.
Student Disability Services
The Dean for Student Academic Support and Advising, Joyce Stern, advises students about the College's policy, procedures and resources. The Dean oversees compliance with College policies and laws and, along with Ann Isgrig, assists in the day-to-day provision of support and accommodations for the academic needs of individual students.
Disclosure and Confidentiality
Disclosure of a disability is a voluntary process. The College keeps documentation concerning disabilities separate from the student's general academic record. Information and records are shared with members of the College staff and faculty only on a need-to-know basis or when specifically requested by the student. Accommodations will not appear on the transcript. Staff and faculty are advised that a student's disability and/or accommodations are confidential and should not be shared with others.
