We kindly ask that you please call or email the staff at the Office of Disability Services to schedule a meeting, request accommodations, discuss services, or ask questions. We want to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy during this time, so we are reducing the number of in-person interactions. As always, we want to assist you in the best way possible, so please don't hesitate to contact us.
The Office of Disability Services recognizes that disability is an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and to the campus community. To this end, the office collaborates with students, faculty and staff across the University community to create a usable, equitable, inclusive and sustainable learning environment.
An individual with a disability is defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered.
