At CapU, we believe that every student has the right to accessible education. We provide students with disabilities the same rights, responsibilities, opportunities and respect for dignity as all students. We do this by providing academic accommodations to mitigate for physical, attitudinal, technological, systemic and communication barriers.
Disabling conditions may be ongoing, episodic, apparent or non-evident, temporary or permanent, and may include speech, hearing, visual, physical, mental health and neurological disabilities as well as chronic health conditions and acquired brain injury.
CapU strives to create an environment free of discrimination in accordance with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the B.C. Human Rights Code.
