Barnard College is committed to providing qualified community members who have disabilities an opportunity to access campus services and participate on an equal basis in our educational programs. The Center for Accessibility Resources & Disability Services (CARDS) is the focal point for meeting the needs of community members (students, faculty, staff, and visitors) with disabilities. We look forward to welcoming you, learning about your circumstances, and providing assistance with your access needs.
Barnard has a tradition of meeting the needs of individual students, and in 1978 this long-standing commitment was formalized with the establishment of the Center for Accessibility Resources & Disability Services (CARDS). Responding to the mandate of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and with contributions from public, private and College resources, the campus has become increasingly accessible. The Center works to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made to provide programmatic and physical access.
