We are excited you have decided to become a part of the Cougar community at Highland Community College! The mission of ADA Services is to create an accessible, inclusive, sustainable learning environment, where disability is recognized as an aspect of diversity that is integral to the campus community and to society.

The goals and objectives of ADA Services are to:

  • Promote and facilitate access through creative outreach and training, collaborative partnerships, innovative programs, and pro-active solutions;

  • Create inclusive environments by engaging and supporting the campus community in progressive system change;

  • Increase the recruitment, transition, retention and graduation of students with disabilities;

  • Consult regarding reducing barriers for persons with disabilities; and

  • Ensure the effective delivery of accommodations.

ADA Services is a part of the Success Center and students with disabilities are an important part of the diversity at HCC and we encourage you to become actively engaged with your learning experiences at Highland. Any time you have questions or concerns, you are welcome to contact any one of the staff within ADA Services.
