The mission of Cedarville University Disability Services is to facilitate a welcoming environment where students with disabilities have equal access to the educational programs, services, activities, and facilities of the University. As a Christ-centered learning community marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth, students, faculty, and staff work together to promote the recognition of students’ abilities, not disabilities, and to provide them the opportunity to fully realize and utilize their God-given gifts and abilities.
As a Christ-centered learning community committed to the sanctity of life and the value of each individual, Cedarville University is committed to providing individuals with disabilities equal and integrated access to all of its educational programs, services, activities, and facilities. This commitment is consistent with the legal requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Cedarville is committed not only to the legal requirements of the law but also to the moral and ethical responsibility to treat all members of the Cedarville family with fairness. Fairness is not treating everyone the same. Fairness is providing everyone the opportunity to be successful while maintaining high academic standards.
In support of this commitment, Cedarville University formally designated an office to work specifically with students with disabilities in 1994. Since that time, the University, in response to the growing needs of students, has taken action by providing resources for meeting the needs of students with disabilities and ensuring they have equal opportunity to the Cedarville experience. Disability services facilitates the provision of accommodations, academic adjustments, and auxiliary aids and services to students with a wide range of disabilities.
