Universal Access Policy

Mount Royal's Universal Access Policy is an approach to the design of all products, processes, procedures, systems, structure and environments. The goal is to make these as usable as possible by as many individuals as possible, regardless of age, ability, or situation.

"Universal" does not imply one solution for everyone; rather, it reflects an awareness of the unique nature of each individual as well as the need to accommodate differences. The aim is to create learning and working experiences to suit the individual and to maximize the individual's ability to progress.

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act

To protect Mount Royal students' personal records and information, our staff and faculty are required to follow the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. We are not permitted to release records or personal contact information to any third party without prior written approval from the student.
