We’re committed to access and opportunity
Disability Services at Multnomah is committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to programs and services on our campus. We work to create an environment where students with disabilities on our campus are welcomed, valued and respected by all members of our community.
By federal law (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990), a person with a disability is any person who:
- Has a physical or mental impairment;
- Has a record of such impairment; or
- Is regarded as having such an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as self-care, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, or learning.
Disability Services reviews requests for academic, non-academic, and residential accommodations due to a disability and makes recommendations as appropriate.
