About Us

The mission of the Adaptive Computer Lab (ACL) is to educate the university community about adaptive technology and support and promote its use on campus. The ACL is committed to increasing opportunities and access through the use of technology for individuals with disabilities. As you can tell from this map, the ACL is located on the upper level of Healey Library, just off the elevators.
