Our Philosophy

College is a time of transition from late adolescence into adulthood. We recognize that students with disabilities face the same challenges as every college bound young adult plus the challenges related to limitations imposed by disabilities. Ultimately, the Student Disability Resource Center, in partnership with university faculty and staff, hope to facilitate every college student's successful transition into an independent adult life.

Our Commitment to You

We do nothing about you, without you.
Any action regarding access to services, seeking special assistance or providing reasonable accommodation must be initiated by you.

We speak with you, not about you.
All communication in any matter related to you flows through you.

No one speaks for you, or acts for you, but you.
We look to you to express your needs, provide us with information that will help us assist you, and keep in contact with us.

Federal Law and university policies require this. But most importantly, our desire to provide you with the best service in this time of transition requires this.

Students need support, but not the control of parents and other family members. Appropriate parental involvement must take place within the boundaries set by law, by good sense and by keeping the long term best interest of the emerging young adult in mind. Such involvement as it relates to university life most often involves advising and encouraging from the sidelines. Only the most extreme circumstances, such as those that seriously threaten the health of the student, allow for direct parental involvement.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
