Mount Allison’s award-winning Meighen Centre for Learning Assistance and Research serves Mount Allison students with disabilities.
The Centre is nationally recognized for its work with students who have learning disabilities and has recently expanded to include services for students with all types of disabilities.
In addition to providing services to students, the Centre works to help those outside the Mount Allison community better understand disabilities and runs a research program to study disabilities, particularly those affecting young adults.
Mount Allison was one of the first universities in Canada to establish a centre specifically for students with learning disabilities. The Meighen Centre has since cemented its reputation as one of the country’s leading support and research facilities in this field.
It now will have the opportunity to extend that expertise to students on campus with other types of disabilities.
