Accessibility Task Force

Mission Statement

The Accessibility Task Force, a collaboration of students, faculty, and staff, seeks to fulfill Bowdoin’s commitment to accessibility for community members with all types of disabilities, impairments, health conditions, or other access needs.

The Task Force seeks to identity and eliminate barriers to inclusion for people with disabilities, while ensuring the College fulfills its legal obligations (outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973).
