The Access and Support Centre (ASC) advances Durham College’s commitment to inclusion in the learning environment.
The ASC’s everyday practice is guided by these principles:
We promote inclusive design and proactive consideration of diverse learners.
We develop partnerships and facilitate education to enhance academic accessibility.
Students determine for themselves the extent to which they access the ASC’s resources and how they will manage their personal information. Services are provided in a manner that respects confidentiality. Students who identify barriers to learning develop access plans with the ASC, and communicate with faculty in order to ensure access in the learning environment
