"Disability is the only minority that anyone can join at any given time."
MacMurray College's Office of Disability Services strives to transform students' lives and foster growth by providing both an environment and opportunities for students with disabilities that support and encourage them to become confident, self-aware, and self-accepting individuals.
Through activities that guide the development of life skills of self-advocacy and recognition and utilization of available resources and with the support of reasonable accommodations in their core academic experiences, students with documented disabilities are challenged to fulfill their educational goals and their personal dreams.
Students arriving at MacMurray College from secondary education services will see quite a few differences between high school and college, especially in that college students are expected to assume much more responsibility for the services they need. Many non-traditional students, on the other hand, have been away from school for some time and face different challenges like managing family life and work while adjusting to rigors of lectures and exams.
No matter your background, the Office of Disability Services will work diligently to help you reach your goals. The collaborative environment fostered by MacMurray College faculty, staff, and administration in this small, private school setting helps to ensure students with disabilities have access not only to their core educational experiences but also to a college community that knows and cares for them.
