DSPS Student Handbook

Mission

The mission of Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) is to ensure equal access to the educational experience for otherwise qualified students with disabilities. We strive to assist students to achieve their academic goals by augmenting their existing strengths and abilities and developing their independence.

DSPS Responsibilites

DSPS appreciates the diversity and individuality of students' disabilities and promotes educational opportunities for students requesting accommodations and services within the college community; promotes positive images of persons with disabilities; promotes support of accommodations while maintaining high academic standards; and promotes a positive educational experience for faculty, staff and students. We will strive to make the most appropriate and reasonable accommodations based on a student's disability and the educational limits it presents.
