Because we want students to enjoy a safe and rewarding study abroad experience, we encourage students with documented disabilities to consider the types of accommodations they will need when exploring the possibilities for study abroad. Many programs Lawrence offers are accessible to most students with disabilities, and we will work to ensure reasonable accommodations, when they can be arranged.
Attitudes and laws related to disabilities vary by culture and these differences impact the level of accommodation available in a particular location. Students are advised to work closely with both the Off-Campus Programs office and the program provider to prepare to participate in a study abroad program. It is strongly recommended that you inform your program of your disability in advance of your participation; this will allow both you and the program to have a plan to address potential issues in advance of your participation.
