If a student has questions or disagrees with any part of their accommodation plan, the student should immediately contact the person who developed the plan (Coordinator of O’Neill Center or Learning Disabilities Specialist) to discuss the matter. If, after this consultation, the student still disagrees with the decision, the student may appeal to the College’s ADA/504 Coordinator who will assist the student through informal or formal steps as outlined online in the Affirmative Action Discrimination Grievance Procedures in the Policy on Affirmative Action Equal Opportunity and Diversity or at the colleges Human Resources office.
If an instructor has questions regarding or disagrees with the College Accommodation Plan for a particular student, the instructor should contact the Coordinator O’Neill Center or Learning Disabilities Specialist whose name is on the College Accommodation Plan.

If the instructor does not provide the accommodation, the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs and the Academic Dean is responsible for ensuring that the accommodation is provided in a timely manner.
The O’Neill Center staff agrees to uphold, support and advance the following ideals when working with students, faculty, staff, department colleagues, student families, partners and the community at large:
