Mission, Vision, & Diversity Statement

Mission

The mission of the Office of Disability Services (ODS) is to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to all university programs and activities. In order to promote this mission, the ODS provides institution-wide advisement, consultation, and training on disability-related topics, collaborates with partners to identify and remove barriers to foster an all-inclusive campus, and provides individual services and facilitates accommodations to students with disabilities. Through a wholistic approach, the ODS promotes student learning, development, and success.

Vision

The Office of Disability Services will strive to become a model program serving students with disabilities in higher education.

Diversity Statement

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) aims to support the wholistic needs of our student body by recognizing and appreciating diversity, access, equity, and inclusion. The ODS recognizes disability as a part, but not an exclusive aspect, of the identity of individuals with disabilities. We envision a campus community where all individuals are seen as valued and contributing members of society.
