We also seek to foster a positive attitudinal and behavioral response from faculty and staff when interacting with persons with disabilities.

  • To improve the quality of higher education for students with disabilities
  • Improve communications between students; and students and faculty regarding disabilities
  • Increase the availability of Assistive technology to ensure access and accommodations to higher education for students with disabilities
  • Maintain and enhance cooperative relationship with Student Disability Services, State-Federal VR programs and other cooperating non-profit rehabilitation agencies and facilities and advocacy groups
