Welcome to the Ross Center Website
This website provides information about disability and academic access at UMass Boston. We encourage you to contact the staff at the Ross Center if you have questions or would like more information, or just to learn about what we do. We are available to have a conversation with you in the office, on the phone, or through email. We look forward to meeting you!
The mission of the Ross Center is to serve as a resource for the UMass Boston campus community in order to ensure academic access and inclusion for students, promoting a view of disability informed by social, cultural, and political forces. RCDS strives to create inclusive academic environments by advancing the construct of universal design throughout the university.
We accomplish this by providing academic accommodations, resources and training in assistive technology, and information to increase the understanding of disability throughout the university community.
University of Massachusetts Boston complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
