Support for Students With Disabilities

Rush University is committed to attracting and educating students who will help to make the health care profession representative of the national population, including individuals with disabilities. In keeping with Rush University’s mission to promote diversity among its student population and providing equal access to its facilities, programs, services and learning opportunities, the University encourages students with disabilities to engage the Office of Student Acceessibility Services as soon as they begin their program. Students should feel free to contact Marie Ferro-Lusk, Director, Office of Student Accessibility Services for Rush University to engage in a confidential conversation about the process for requesting reasonable accommodations in the classroom and clinical settings.

Accommodations are not provided retroactively and students are encouraged to register with the Office of Student Accessibility Services as soon as they begin their program. Additional information can be found online at the Office of Accessibility Services website or by contacting the Office of Student Accessibility Services. In order to respect student’s privacy and ensure a thoughtful interactive discussion, students should not make accommodation requests to individual faculty members, lecturers, or course directors, instead please contact:
