Disability Services

Disability Services is committed to assisting students with disabilities by making reasonable accommodations to assure that all students have equal access.  It is the policy of Lipscomb University to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the state and local regulation’s regarding students with disabilities. Pursuant to these laws, no qualified individual shall unlawfully be denied access to or participation in any services, programs, or activities of Lipscomb University on the basis of their disability. The preceding requires institutions of higher learning to provide reasonable accommodations for the needs of qualified students as they pursue post-secondary education.

In carrying out this policy, we recognize that “disabilities” may involve physical, psychological, and learning problems, and we will attempt to provide accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities, to the extent it is reasonably achievable to do so. We are unable, however, to make accommodations that are unduly burdensome or that fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, course or activity.

If you would like to request an accommodation or if you have general questions about the functions of Disability Services, please contact Kaitlin Shetler, Director of Disability Services, at 615.966.6301 or 1.800.333.4358, x. 6301 or by email at kaitlin.shetler@lipscomb.edu
