This role is located within the Writing & Learning Centre (WLC), OCAD U’s academic success unit, and collaborates closely with the team in Student Accessibility Services (SAS) as well as other academic support units across the university.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a strong knowledge of best practices in student learning support, an understanding of Disability Studies theory and practice, and experience leading collaborative, stakeholder-driven needs assessment and program development processes to inform the growth of the learning support portfolio at OCAD U, contributing to our institutional goals<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ocadu.ca%2FAssets%2Fcontent%2Fgovernance%2FAcademic-Plan-2017.pdf&data=04%7C01%7Cccappon%40ocadu.ca%7Ce8982f016c3644aea54f08d8e25df6ed%7C06e469d12d2a468fae9b7df0968eb6d7%7C0%7C0%7C637508240486906434%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=gK%2F4AU3diH66Oe5%2FV3nRdHo3IESWyBRlNmaGG4IcRtc%3D&reserved=0> around enhancing inclusion and access to art and design education.
