Durham College recognizes the importance of inclusive learning environments designed for diverse learners. The Access and Support Centre (ASC) at Durham College works with students and faculty to provide full opportunities for academic success. The ASC provides confidential services to students who are temporarily at-risk or identified with an exceptionality, to ensure equal access to all aspects of the academic environment.
The ASC provides accommodations to meet students’ individual needs through assistive technology and through coaching on self-advocacy and success strategies. Our team works in partnership with the students and faculty to co-ordinate appropriate supports to ensure inclusive and accessible learning environments on campus. Our services are designed in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
In the event that a student discovers they require ASC support after starting their program, our team is here to assist.
