About DS

DS Intro Video


The DS Mission
Disability Services is committed to supporting and sustaining an inclusive campus that recognizes disability as diversity. We are dedicated to ensuring individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully participate in the educational process and university experience.


What we do

  • Identify barriers to access

  • Determine appropriate accommodations

  • Facilitate conversations about access on campus

  • Promote disability as diversity

  • Serve as a resource to the campus community

  • Provide trainings and consultations

  • Advocate for universal design

Our values

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

  • Inclusion and full participation are a matter of social justice. Accommodations are a civil right.

  • Intentional design is powerful in its ability to both promote and limit full participation and inclusion.

  • Creating usable, equitable, sustainable, and inclusive environments is a shared university responsibility.

  • Variation in ability is a natural part of the human experience.  Disability is a difference not a defect.

  • Individuals experience disability in unique ways. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.
