Welcome to Disability Services
As a member of a highly competitive research institution, your role is to actively participate in your academic and personal learning, to respectfully communicate with faculty and staff, to enthusiastically seek resources, and to grow as a person with a disability.
Disability Services will work collaboratively with you as you develop independence and self-advocacy, as well as create your network of resources. Disability Services will provide honest and supportive feedback to you throughout your journey at the university. It starts with assisting you in the transition to university life, which may require relinquishing preconceived ideas about learning, academic pursuits, and accommodations. You will learn to navigate the multiple complex systems within the campus community and serve as your own disability advocate. The more you invest, the more you will gain.
Eventually, you will leave the university and transition to your next journey, and it is our hope that Disability Services will have played a memorable role in your university experience.
