Individuals Who Require Assistance

It is imperative that individuals with disabilities prepare for emergencies before they happen.


The Office of Accessible Education is designated to assist all students with disabilities and is available to discuss emergency procedures with students and familiarize them with evacuation routes specific to their housing and classroom assignments. For more information please contact the office at (504) 865-2990 or visit their website.

Faculty and staff

If you require assistance, evaluate your needs and master the skill of giving quick information on how best to assist you. Be clear and concise.

Establish a personal network consisting of people who are regularly in the same area as you. Do not depend on any one person, as they may not always be available. Assess your own abilities and communicate your capabilities and limitations to those in your network.
