Support for Individuals With Disabilities

The OAR seeks to provide a strong support system for individuals with disabilities.

We are committed to ensuring that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability will be denied participation in or the benefits of any of Bucknell's programs on the basis of a disability.

We will provide reasonable accommodations to all individuals who meet the criteria of an individual with a disability from the Americans with Disabilities Act and its amendment (ADA, 1990, ADAAA, 2008).

Self-Identification to OAR Director

It is the responsibility of the individual with a disability to self-identify to the OAR director and to provide documentation.

When the individual and director meet, they will discuss the appropriate and reasonable accommodations that may benefit the individual 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.
