Mission

Disability Services ensures that students with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations and services to participate fully in the academic environment.

Vision

We envision a fully accessible, integrated, and universally designed campus community. Students with disabilities are one of the many groups that make up our campus community and a diverse community broadens our understanding and appreciation for the contributions of each individual.

Philosophy

Disability Services provides leadership and guidance regarding accommodations and universal access, which requires a collaborative relationship among all members of the university community.

Core Values

  • Human variation is natural and vital in the development of dynamic communities

  • Building and using an academic success toolkit (i.e., self-advocacy skills, resources, various study strategies) is essential for all students

  • Responsibility for meaningful and universal access belongs to all

  • A diverse and stimulating university community is a shared responsibility; disability is diversity

  • Universal design is essential for achieving inclusion and social participation of all
