Inclusive Learning Support

About Us

The Office of Inclusive Learning Support (ILS) provides support services that are available to all students. Our goal is to ensure that every aspect of campus life and the academic experience is inclusive and accessible to students, faculty members, and staff alike.

Inclusivity and advocacy are two integral pillars for us. Our efforts aim to ensure equal participation and learning experiences for all students, including those with disabilities. Currently ILS supports students with visual impairment, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, psycho-social disabilities, and other neurodivergent conditions.

In alignment with our commitment to facilitating learning support, the Office extends its services to provide academic support for students from marginalised communities and challenging socio-economic backgrounds, helping bridge educational disparities. The Office also advocates on issues of gender, sexuality, etc., and encourages a culture of inclusivity and accessibility on campus.

The Office assesses needs on a case-by-case basis to make recommendations for reasonable accommodations on campus. Additionally, the Office is involved in creating an active space in the University that could be used for advocacy, education, and awareness regarding accessibility, diversity, and inclusion.
