Mission | Vision
The mission of the Office of Disability Services is to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to all university programs and activities. We provide students the opportunity to reach their full potential by coordinating academic accommodations and support services. We help to foster a supportive and inclusive educational environment through an intersectional model that helps build and maintain partnerships across the university community.
The Office of Disability Services will strive to become a model program serving students with disabilities in higher education. We are committed to developing a campus community in which individuals with disabilities thrive and participate fully. These individuals will be challenged to become responsible decision-makers, problem solvers and self-advocates with agency in their own education and future. We envision a campus community where all individuals are seen as valued and contributing members of society. Respect for all will encompass everything we do.
The Office of Disability Services at Texas State University recognizes disability as a part, but not an exclusive aspect, of the identity of individuals with disabilities. As such, we have operationalized a social justice model in lieu of a clinical one. This intersectional model aims to support the wholistic needs of all students as valued members of the campus community through our intentional regard for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
