Welcome from President Drew Gilpin Faust


With a growing number of people who have disabilities joining the Harvard community -- students, faculty, and staff -- it is especially important for all of us to understand and support the particular needs and rights of these individuals. Toward this end, Accessible Education Office (AEO) serves as a valuable source of information and guidance for both students and other Harvard affiliates.

This Web site, which was prepared by AEO, provides an introduction to the capabilities of AEO, and suggests different ways that the University can be helpful in ensuring that all of our students can participate fully in the life of the University. Some of the issues addressed may be new to you. All of the issues merit your consideration. Each of us can help to make Harvard a welcoming place for people with disabilities. Thank you for giving this extremely important matter your attention, and for joining me in this effort.

Drew Gilpin Faust
President, Harvard University
