Mission Statement

Student Disability Services (SDS) serves the University of Iowa’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by providing support and academic accommodations for students with disabilities. SDS collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create an accessible educational environment for all. We welcome, encourage, and empower the students we serve. SDS builds awareness of issues related to accessibility within the University of Iowa community.

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.
