Tramble Rooms - Centre for Accessible Learning

The Program for Students with Disabilities, now the Tramble Centre for Accessible Learning, was established in 1989 by Mary Ellen Clancy. Our staff welcomes students with documented permanent disabilities and offers them a student-centered program of support. Working with our knowledgeable staff, students with disabilities become effective self-advocates and active participants in the StFX community and beyond. Many students in our program assume leadership roles in their classes, residences or campus societies, and many have gone on to successful careers in teaching, law, business, social work, fitness, and computer technology. 

The Tramble Centre for Accessible Learning is located in its new home on the first floor of the Angus L. MacDonald Library, Room 108. It is here where program staff meet with  new and returning students to help with program planning, study skills, time management, tutoring, exam accommodations, audio texts, adaptive technology and disability grant applications. The text-to-speech software, Read and Write Gold, is available to all students on campus through our site license. The Tramble Rooms are named in honor of Judge Donnie Tramble, an alumnus of StFX, whose life inspired his classmates to create an endowment fund to support students with disabilities.
