Peer Mentoring Services

Peer mentoring is an integral part of creating an inclusive college environment for students. At BSC, peer mentors are students who develop relationships with fellow students with disabilities. Peer mentors also provide academic support, social support, job coaching, independent living skills training, as well as support for self-advocacy and self-determination.

 

REACH@BSC

REACH@BSC is an inclusive college program for students with intellectual disabilities. REACH students will attend college, take inclusive courses to earn meaningful credentials, complete community employment internships and learn important independent living and social skills while engaged in campus and residence life.

 

Student Accessibility Services

The mission of BSC's Student Accessibility office is to support students with disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations and equitable access to educational opportunities while maintaining quality academic standards. Student Accessibility Services promote self-awareness, self-determination, and self-advocacy, while ensuring individuals with disabilities have the same access to programs, opportunities, and activities as all others. Students are assisted in implementing reasonable accommodations to meet their individual needs.
