Welcome to the Whittemore Library Accessibility Libguide!

The purpose of this guide is to provide resources for making online spaces at FSU accessible and usable to all users. This guide compiles physical and online information from government resources, as well as resources at Framingham State University. We hope this guide serves to inform users with disabilities about the many support systems available on campus, as well as enlighten users without disabilities on how they can make their content available to all.

FSU Commitment

Framingham State University is committed to providing equal access to employment and educational opportunities for otherwise qualified persons with disabilities.  The University recognizes that individuals with disabilities may need reasonable accommodations to have equally effective opportunities to participate in or benefit from educational programs, services, activities and employment.

The University is committed to accessibility and usability.  There are many services and support resources available to our community.  We hope this site will help you identify and understand some of those services and resources.

The Center for Academic Success and Achievement, or CASA, offers professional and peer tutoring, academic success coaching, and disability resources and accommodations to promote student learning and success. CASA is also home to GenerationOne, an affinity group for first-generation college students as well as several community outreach and mentorship programs.


What Is A Disability?

An individual with a disability is defined by the ADA as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered.
