AccessibleNU(ANU) is responsible for the academic accommodation determination and coordination process for students with disabilities. ANU aims to identify educational barriers, problem solve to create equitable learning environments, communicate referral options for disability evaluation and academic assistance, and establish best practices for disability inclusion. Northwestern University honors disability as one of the many forms of diversity on our campus and as such, we actively collaborate with faculty, staff, and students to achieve access goals. Here are some examples of accommodations provided:
Testing accommodations such as extra time on exams
Note-taking technology assistance
Interpreting and captioning services
Classroom relocation for physical access needs
Reasonable accommodations are individualized and flexible based on the nature of the disability and the academic environment. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. They provide equal access, not an unfair advantage.
