Disability Services at Clark University

Clark University is committed to providing equal access to otherwise qualified students with disabilities who are able to effectively function in a rigorous campus-based liberal arts environment.

Although Clark does not offer a specialized program, or a learning center for students with disabilities, the University does provide a support service for qualified students. The director of disability services works with students to coordinate academic accommodations and services on campus.

Disability Services is located in the Goddard Library, Room 430. This office is the point of contact for any student seeking accommodations.

We encourage parents and students interested in learning about the Disabilities Service support service to read the following information. If questions are left unanswered, we then encourage further contact via phone or email. The phone number is (508) 798-4368 and the email address is disabilityoffice@clarku.edu.
