student ACCESSIBILITY services (SAS)
Our community is committed to keeping our campus accessible. Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is a part of the Dean of Students Office in the division of Student Life. The Accessibility Review Committee is comprised of staff members from the University Wellness Center (psychologists and medical professionals), the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Affairs, and the Assistant Director of Residential Life. Student Accessibility Services 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 which are available to their peers without disabilities;
- Students with disabilities are afforded access as immediately and unobtrusively as possible at the point of institutional contact; and
- Students with disabilities are recognized for their abilities, rather than their disabilities, or stereotypical attributes ascribed to their respective physical or mental impairments.
