Our services include evaluating disability documentation, arranging academic accommodations and providing disability management/counseling to students with disabilities. We also coordinate with other departments, both academic and administrative, such as Residential Life, the Department of Public Safety, the School of Law, and the Dean's offices of the various schools on campus, to meet students' needs. We are available to the University community (faculty, staff, parents and all students) for consultation on a broad range of disability issues and manage the needs of students with temporary disabilities (e.g., mobility limitations and transient but severe illnesses).

We also strive serve the broader University community by raising awareness of the needs and rights of persons with disabilities. We also facilitate dialog about issues of diversity and inclusion and promote respect for the unique needs, challenges, strengths and contributions of community members. In doing so, we further the University's goals of promoting academic achievement and excellence in the context of inclusion and compassionate service.

If you are a student who would like to be considered for academic accommodations, please follow the instructions under Requesting Services.
