Accessibility is a shared responsibility of all campus community members. Our common goal with faculty and support staff is to provide equitable access to all academic programs and activities. DASS works collaboratively with faculty and support staff to ensure an accessible and inclusive educational experience for students with disabilities. Active faculty collaboration in the implementation of these accommodations is an essential and valued part of the disability accommodation process.
