The mission of the Student Office for Accessibility Resources is to create an accessible, inclusive, sustainable learning environment, where disability is recognized as an aspect of diversity that is integral to the campus community and to society. Our primary objective is to provide equal access to campus programs and activities for all students.

We envision Furman University to be a fully accessible campus and inclusive environment for people with disabilities. We do this by:

  • Acknowledging disability as an aspect of human diversity;
  • Cultivating awareness of the environment’s disabling barriers;
  • Collaborating on and proactively facilitating accessible environments and experiences;
  • Educating faculty and staff to create and maintain access in their spheres of influence;
  • Creating an inclusive disability culture;
  • Supplementing with reasonable accommodations to ensure access.
