Access Resource Centre and Academic Success Centre – Course Outline Statements

An accessibility statement indicates your willingness to assist in the provision of academic accommodations. It informs your students of the role of UNBC’s Access Resource Centre (ARC) and the university’s responsibility to provide necessary academic accommodations. The Access Resource Centre (ARC) and Academic Success Centre (ASC) provide the suggested statements for inclusion in your course outlines.

Access Resource Centre

  • chronic health issues (e.g., Crohn’s, Diabetes, HIV, Lupus)

  • mental health challenges (e.g., anxiety disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression disorder)
  • neurological disabilities (e.g., ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Epilepsy, Concussion, Migraines, Multiple Sclerosis)
  • mobility and other physical disabilities.

ARC staff are available, by appointment, to meet with you to determine which academic accommodations can be put in place to support you in achieving their academic goals, provide referrals, and help advocate for you.
