UNC-Asheville recognizes disability as a valued aspect of diversity. As a campus, we understand access as a matter of social justice, and strive to design more welcoming and inclusive environments.

The Office of Academic Accessibility works collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to ensure that all aspects of campus life — learning, working, and living — are universally accessible. The Office provides the University community with resources, education, innovative programming, and direct services in order that people with disabilities may have a greater opportunity to achieve social justice and equity.
