Accessibility Resources and Services Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Student Affairs at Pomona College fosters the holistic development of students by focusing on personal and social responsibility, co-curricular education, and community engagement on and off campus. We are committed to nurturing an engaged, thriving, safe and healthy community that is responsive to student needs.

The Accessibility Resources and Services (ARS) in the Dean of Students office is committed to providing equal access and reasonable accommodations, where appropriate, for qualified disabled students. The College will continue to develop and coordinate policies and procedures, provide services, and insure access to academic programs, activities, and facilities. Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to speak to the College’s Director of Accessibility regarding potential accommodations and the required paperwork.

Goals for Disability Resources and Services

  • To partner with students to achieve their academic goals and graduate from Pomona College
  • Facilitate the transition from high school to college
  • Serve as a campus resource for students, faculty, and staff
  • Support students to understand their strengths, self-advocate, participate in leadership opportunities and develop their total self.

Confidentiality

The Dean of Students/Accessibility Director adheres to strict standards of confidentiality in the management of student information. Since ARS is the only holder of disability documentation, all disability-related documentation should be directed to disability@pomona.edu.
