Student Disability Services

Mission Statement

The mission of Student Disability Services is to assure access through reasonable accommodations to qualified students who currently demonstrate a condition producing significant functional limitations in one or more major life activities.

About Student Disability Services

Equal access to education is achieved when barriers to learning are removed and students with disabilities are allowed to compete solely on the basis of their academic skills and abilities. Student Disability Services (SDS) strives to ensure a fair learning environment where students are able to succeed based on their own efforts and initiative, and staff members work with students, faculty, and other university resources to coordinate accommodations for entitled students under federal legislation.
