Disability Concerns provides accommodation services that support people with disabilities in: the realization of academic goals, reaching professional goals, and becoming contributing members of society and lifelong learners. To receive services from Disability Concerns, appropriate medical/psychoeducational documen- tation must be provided. Upon receipt of the docu- mentation, the case coordinator works with the student, faculty or staff on a case-by-case basis to determine the impact of the disability and the appropriate accommodation(s). Disability Concerns offers a variety of services to accommo- date persons with disabilities. Accommodations provided may include, but are not limited to, test- ing accommodations, sign language interpreters, readers, scribes, notetakers, assistive technologies and materials in alternative formats. Disability Concerns provides many of its ser- vices through a volunteer model. This is promot- ed to diminish attitudinal barriers and to promote understanding and respect for persons with dis- abilities. All students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the University are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents. This volunteer program offers the opportunity to obtain volunteer hours, develop experience to enhance a resume, and per- haps most importantly, develop skills that encour- age and promote diversity. Persons interested in providing volunteer assistance should inquire at Disability Concerns.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
