Accessibility

Hope College is committed to ensuring accessibility for people with disabilities.

Guiding Principles for Accessibility

It is our desire for all members of the Hope community to say:

  • I can get there
  • I can particpate
  • I can access all information

Web Accessibility Policy

Hope affirms the dignity of every person as a creature made in the image of God and thus worthy of our earnest respect and inclusion. Additionally, as a recipient of Federal financial assistance, we work to comply with all related Federal laws. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 104, prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability.
