Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) collaborates with students, faculty, staff and guests to advance access within the campus community and to further extend both the mission of The College of New Jersey and the mission of the Division of Inclusive Excellence to persons with disabilities. As part of this effort, ARC promotes an awareness of disability as a facet of diversity with underpinnings of collaborative efforts being rooted in social justice.

Lion Plus Program
The Lion Plus Program at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) is a fee-based holistic student support program for students with documented disabilities who have affiliated with ARC. The scope of Lion Plus Program services extends beyond legally mandated (ADA) accommodations, which remain free-of-charge, and are a critical component of equitable educational access. For freshmen, the purpose of the Lion Plus Program is to assist with all aspects of transitioning from the high school environment to the TCNJ community, with campus connectedness as a focal point. For upper class students (sophomores, juniors and seniors), the Lion Plus Program is centered on retention, continued integration and academic and interpersonal independence. Here is a video describing the Lion Plus Program in more detail.
The Lion Plus Program will be identifying openings for the Spring 2023 semester. If you are interested, please contact Dixita Malatesta, Learning Specialist, Accessibility Resource Center, at email@example.com. If financial assistance is needed for participation in this program, please let her know.
