Our Vision

Student Accessibility Services will make a positive difference in the lives, personal growth and academic success of students, regardless of their background, stage of life, or abilities.


Student Accessibility Services is committed to respecting, supporting, and celebrating the diversity of the broad range of people within the McMaster community. As committed professionals and responsible citizens, staff of Student Accessibility Services strives to ensure that people who use our services are treated with respect, dignity, and without prejudice. For example, discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual/affectional orientation, physical ability, mental health, age, socio-economic status, or religious/spiritual beliefs is inconsistent with our mission and values. We hope that you can consider our Service a safe, accepting, and comfortable place.
