Mission Statement

The Office of the Dean of the College (“DOC”) is committed to building and maintaining a diverse, inclusive, and vibrant community, representing a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints. Within this community, we strive to create an environment in which mutual respect is paramount and which prizes and nurtures the qualities of openness and the willingness to embrace personal and academic challenges.

Consistent with the DOC’s mission, Student Accessibility Services strives to promote equal educational opportunity and inclusiveness for students with qualifying disabilities. To that end, Student Accessibility Services recognizes and supports the standards set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and similar state laws, which are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. Student Accessibility Services is committed to making reasonable accommodation for students with qualifying disabilities in order to facilitate access to Middlebury’s program, activities, and services.
