Meet the Accessibility Team

Leanne Hutchins

Manager of Student Accessibility

(506) 453-7201


Leanne grew up in Sackville, New Brunswick. She holds a Bachelor of Philosophy from UNB (2011) and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Dalhousie University (2017).  


As Manager of Accessibility Services, Leanne works with students living with visible and invisible disabilities requiring academic accommodations. She also assists students to acquire funding for students with disabilities. Entering university with a learning accommodation or recognizing at any point in your degree that accommodations may be necessary can be a daunting task - but it shouldn't be. Our office is here to support you through the process, assist with student-professor communication, and develop self-advocacy skills that will be of benefit long after your degree is completed.


“My goal is to support all students in their effort to complete their studies on an even playing field and to assist students with developing self-advocacy skills in relation to their specific strengths and needs. ”
