In addition to direct services to students, the Directors provide leadership in University policy in the area of access for students in academics, housing, and accommodations provision.

Disability Advisers

Disability Advisers (DAs) work directly with students to understand their disability experiences, determine appropriate accommodations, and facilitate barrier removal with campus partners, in coursework, and student housing.

DA's primary role is to guide the interactive process between students and the University. DAs are subject matter experts in disability rights in the postsecondary educational environment and offer consultation and training to faculty, staff, and student groups.
