Accessibility for Faculty

It is Sheridan’s mission to deliver a premier, purposeful educational experience in an environment renowned for creativity and innovation. To do so, we recognize the need to provide our faculty with an environment respectful of the dignity, independence, integration and equality of opportunity of people with disabilities. This site will provide you with a wealth of information about how Sheridan supports our faculty, both in and outside the classroom. Visitors and members of the public are welcome also to use this site to access our corporate accessibility and AODA information.

If you require information from the Sheridan website or any other Sheridan publication in an alternate format or with communication support, please contact the Centre for Equity and Inclusion at accessibility@sheridancollege.ca or 905 845 9430 ext 2775.
