Center for Accommodations and Resource for Excellence

The Center of Accommodations and Resource for Excellence (CARE) is a sub-division of the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE).  

The mission of the Center of Accommodations and Resource for Excellence (CARE) is to provide accommodations and support for students with disabilities that will ensure their full engagement in campus life, both in the classroom and outside the classroom.

Concordia University Chicago recognizes and supports the standards set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and similar state laws (hereinafter “applicable law[s]"), which are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. Disabilities may include physical or mental impairments which substantially limit one or more of a person's major life activities, and which necessitates modifications to the facilities or services of the University.

Concordia University Chicago does not discriminate with regard to race, creed or religion, national origin, sex, age, disability or color. The University seeks to provide an environment and community where each person may develop academically, socially and spiritually. Concordia University Chicago is committed to making reasonable accommodations for qualifying students with disabilities as required by the applicable laws.
