Accessibility Services assists the University in creating an accessible learning environment that encourages full participation in academic courses for students experiencing disabilities.
If you are a student experiencing a disability-related barrier who may require academic accommodation and have not yet registered with Accessibility Services, please contact their office. You must be registered with Accessibility Services to access academic accommodations.
If you are a student with an Academic Accommodation Letter and Professor Acknowledgement form from Accessibility Services, please make an appointment with me as soon as possible to discuss your accommodations in a private and confidential setting. Requests to review and sign academic accommodation documents should not be made during or between classes.
Diversity and Human Rights
You are encouraged to find general information as well as information on how to address issues related to diversity, inclusion, discrimination, harassment, accommodation, healthy relationships and dating, domestic and sexual violence. See the Diversity and Human Rights Website for more information.

University is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming and leave you with lots of questions. If you are struggling with academic or non-academic concerns, are unsure where to go for help, or if you simply just want to get connected to campus, Early Support is here for you. Refer yourself to Early Support and we will reach out to help you navigate your way through your University career, putting you in touch with support services outside of the classroom when you need them.
