Student Disability Services

Beloit College is committed to creating and sustaining a successful community of inclusive excellence as we prepare students to live, learn, and work among people who experience the world in fundamentally different ways.  Within this framework, the College is committed to providing a supportive environment for students with disabilities as well as to complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Students with disabilities who seek accommodations are to contact Learning Enrichment and Disability Services (LEADS), demonstrate self-advocacy, and responsibly engage in their learning.

Prospective students and/or parents are encouraged to contact the Director to discuss student disability services. With advance notice, the Director is usually available to meet with those visiting campus.

Current students who have a disability or want to discuss possible options are encouraged to call or come by second floor Pearsons to make an appointment.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to read through their section on this website, attend professional development sessions related to disability/access/equity and apply universal design learning concepts in their own area or class. 

Other constituencies of the College (e.g. employees, visitors, alumni, community members) that have disabilities are served by other offices. 

The ADA/504 Coordinator of the College is Lori Rhead, Vice President for Human Resources and Operations, 608-363-2631, rheadl@beloit.edu.
