Accessibility at Pratt
Pratt is committed to providing equal and effective access for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations will be provided for individuals with disabilities, including chronic illness, in a fair and equitable manner, and in accordance with applicable federal and state law. Requests for accommodations should be made reasonably in advance of an appointment or program, to allow sufficient time to make any necessary modifications to ensure the relevant classes, programs or activities are readily accessible.
The Learning/Access Center is available to all Pratt students confidentially, with additional resources and information to facilitate full access to all classrooms, residence, campus programs and/or activities and provide support related to any other disability-related matters. The L/AC is located in the ISC Building, Room 104.
Faculty and Staff
Human Resources is available to Pratt employees, confidentially, needing a reasonable accommodation or regarding any other needs or issues related to accessibility on campus and is located in Myrtle Hall, 2nd Floor.
