ADA Accessible Library Resources

Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center is committed to providing equal access to education for the Webster University community by ensuring that students with documented disabilities receive the support and accommodations they need for academic success. The Academic ADA Coordinator works with each student to create reasonable accommodations that meet their individual needs. At extended sites, site directors or a designated staff member works with students regarding their needs and accommodations. However, the Academic ADA Coordinator is available to assist employees at extended sites as well.

To find out more about accommodations, please contact:

Shelley S. Wolfmeyer, M.A.
Academic ADA Coordinator

The Academic Resource Center also provides assistive technology consultations on a variety of technologies to assist students with access to classroom materials. Additionally, the ARC can provide students with training and access to assistive technologies available on-campus.
