Bucknell University is committed to providing accessibility and reasonable accommodations to all who visit, work, and study on campus.
The Office of Disability Services (ODS) at Bucknell University exists to ensure access, provide support, and help to navigate or remove barriers for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campus. The ODS is committed to providing a strong support system for individuals with disabilities, and is committed to ensuring that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability will be denied participation in or the benefits of any of our programs on the basis of a disability. The ODS will provide reasonable accommodations to all individuals who meet the criteria of an indivdual with a disability from the Americans with Disabilities Act and its amendment (ADA, 1990, ADAAA, 2008).
It is the responsibility of the individual with a disability to self-identify to the Director of the ODS and provide documentation. When the individual and Director meet, they will discuss the appropriate and reasonable accommodations that may benefit them in the classroom, the campus community or other areas. Given the many types, dimensions and complexities of disabilities, reasonable accommodations will be determined on an individual basis.
For more information or to speak with the Director, please contact, Heather Fowler, 570-577-1188 or h.fowler@
