Academic AccessAbility.

College is a time of exciting new opportunities and experiences. Students expect to meet new people, learn new things, and experience new freedoms.

The Office of Academic AccessAbility (OAA) at Catawba College is here to assist students in dealing with these new and exciting challenges. Together, we can find improved ways of managing and growing from these experiences.

Our Mission

Catawba College recognizes disability as a valued aspect of diversity. As a campus, we understand access as a matter of social justice, and strive to design more welcoming and inclusive environments.

The Office of Academic AccessAbility works collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to ensure that all aspects of campus life — learning, working, and living — are universally accessible.
