An inclusive learning environment

Everyone should have equal access to education. Accessibility Services (part of Learner Success Services) offers support for learners with disabilities.

What is Accessibility Services?

Getting a good education shouldn't be difficult for you. We work with other Bow Valley departments to support learners with disabilities. We also support Universal Design for Learning (UDL), because all students should be able to use their course materials successfully. We work hard to make sure all students have access to the education they need.
