VISION:Student Disability Services embraces an educational community that celebrates and values the uniqueness and diversity of each student.
MISSION:In the spirit of equity, and in collaboration with the larger campus community, Student Disability Services leads the university in its commitments to recognize disability as a valued aspect of diversity, to embrace access as a matter of social justice, and to design more welcoming and inclusive environments.

We support university standards and integrity by valuing high expectations for all students, including those with disabilities.
