Welcome to Disability Support Services at CCBC!
The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) is committed to the philosophy of nondiscrimination for individuals with disabilities. We ensure all programs and activities of the College are in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. To ensure compliance with these laws, each campus has established an office charged with the responsibility of providing reasonable accommodations and support services to students with disabilities. These offices work closely with all academic departments and other college offices to help provide creative and reasonable solutions to problems faced by students with disabilities.
Vision, Mission, and Philosophy of the CCBC Disability Support Services Office
Vision: The CCBC Disability Support Services Offices envision a campus community without physical, social, or academic barriers to persons with disabilities.
Mission: The mission of the CCBC Disability Support Services Offices is to support students with disabilities in accomplishing their personal, academic, and career goals by providing support services, and coordinating programs and accommodations that provide equal access in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Philosophy: It is our philosophy that each student with a disability can and must, to the best extent possible, play a primary role in understanding his/her disability, stating his/her educational goals, and describing his/her needs for service. Our goal is to help each student to grow in self-understanding, confidence and maturity and to develop into a knowledgeable and effective advocate for him/herself. Through an ongoing educational process and support services, we assist students in achieving academic success at CCBC, while preparing them for success in work and further education.
