Greenfield Community College encourages students with disabilities to participate fully in campus activities. The Office of Disability Services works with students, faculty, and staff to promote universal design and to remove barriers to access on campus. Disability Services collaborates with the Greenfield Community College counseling staff to provide ongoing support for students with a variety of disabilities, including cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, mental illness, low vision/blindness, deafness and traumatic brain injury. Disability Services also serves as a resource center for medical and legal advocacy, information, and referrals.
