Disability Services/Learning Disabilities Support Services

Director: Madeline L. Peters
231 Whitmore, (413) 545-0892 V/TTY

Disability Services, part of the Equal Opportunity and Diversity Office, works to ensure that reasonable and effective accommodations and support services are put in place for students with documented disabilities. In order to identify the accommodations and determine the appropriate and available resources and accommodations, students are strongly urged to meet with a consumer manager during the application process.

Advocacy, counseling, and support are provided at all levels of academic and administrative programs and services. Consumer managers are skilled in the field of Disability Services at the post-secondary level, as well as being highly knowledgeable in disability issues, laws, and resources.

Disability Services is open year-round, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those who need ASL or oral interpreters can also call (413) 545-0892 V/TTY in advance to request these services for the day of appointment or campus visit.
