Statement of Compliance

Wentworth Institute of Technology is fully committed to creating a community characterized by inclusion and diversity. As part of this commitment, Wentworth upholds the American with Disabilities Act as Amended of 2008, the American with Disabilities Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (collectively referred to as “the ADA").

The University’s ADA Policy is available online.

Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation

Wentworth Institute of Technology recognizes that reasonable accommodations can enhance the accessibility of University Programs and Activities. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustments to a course, program, process, job, service, or activity that enables a qualified individual with a disability to obtain equal access.

Wentworth Institute of Technology provides reasonable accommodations to faculty, staff, and students with disabilities unless doing so would create an undue hardship, compromise the health and safety of members of the university community, or fundamentally alter the nature of the university’s employment mission. Reasonable accommodation will be provided for qualified individuals with disabilities, including chronic illness, in a fair and equitable manner and in accordance with applicable federal and state law.

Students seeking reasonable accommodations under the criteria in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) policy in their classroom, residence, or for any other University activity should contact Accessibility Services at (617) 989-4390 or visit their website.

Employees seeking reasonable accommodations under the criteria in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy may request an accommodation by filling out the online request form or by contacting Catlin Wells, Executive Director of Equity and Compliance/Title IX Coordinator.

Catlin Wells can be reached via phone at (617) 989-4390 or via email at

Information about the ADA process for employees is available online.
