Welcome to Student Accessibility Services
Mission Statement

The mission of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is to ensure that students with disabilities are afforded an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from the programs, services, and activities of The University of the South through the identification and enactment of reasonable modifications to institutional policies and procedures, the provision of auxiliary aids and services, and the establishment of innovative educational services.  The University is committed to a culture of inclusivity that embraces students of all means and backgrounds.

SAS seeks to create an environment wherein the nature and degree of access to programs, services, and facilities and the level of self-determination afforded qualified persons with disabilities are indistinguishable from those available to their peers without disabilities. Students with disabilities are afforded access immediately and unobtrusively at the point of institutional contact. They are recognized for their abilities rather than their disabilities or stereotypical attributes ascribed to their respective physical or mental impairments.
