AccessAbility Resource Centre

The mission of the AccessAbility Resource Centre is to ensure that all students with disabilities can freely and actively participate in all facets of University life; to provide and coordinate services and programs that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential and to increase awareness of inclusive values among all members of the University community.

The AccessAbility Resource Centre is a student service, academic service and University of Toronto equity office on the UTM campus. It is a separate entity from the St. George and Scarborough disability offices and is funded through a grant from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. The Director of the Centre reports directly to the Dean of Student Affairs & Assistant Principal, Student Services at UTM.

The Centre provides services and academic accommodations to students who have a documented learning, physical, sensory, mental health disability or medical condition.

Any information that a student discloses to our staff regarding the nature of their disability or health condition is kept confidential. Each staff member/volunteer of the Centre at UTM, including Invigilators, signs a "Declaration of Confidentiality" form which stresses the importance of not disclosing information about students who use the services of the Centre.
