Mobility/Physical Disabilities Services

Specialized professional support services are available through the SAC to students with physical and mobility disabilities.
 We assist students with educational and personal problems and concerns.
Our primary purpose is to determine and facilitate the receipt of
appropriate academic accommodations on campus.
In doing so we work closely with faculty and staff to promote a
campus climate sensitive to all students with disabilities.
