Our primary objective is to promote independence and facilitate achievement of educational and vocational goals for individuals with disabilities.
GCC encourages students with disabilities to participate fully in campus activities. The Office of Disability Services works with students, faculty, and staff to promote universal design and to remove barriers to access on campus.
Disability Services collaborates with the GCC counseling staff to provide ongoing support for students with a variety of disabilities, including cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, mental illness, low vision/blindness, deafness and traumatic brain injury. Disability Services also serves as a resource center for medical and legal advocacy, information, and referrals.
Disability Services is also responsible for verifying student eligibility for accommodations, coordinating accommodations across campus, and providing consultation and training about disabilities for faculty and staff.
