Disabled Students’ Program

The Disabled Students' Program (DSP) promotes an inclusive environment for students with disabilities.

DSP's Mission: We equip disabled students with appropriate accommodations and services to achieve their individual academic goals. We are dedicated to supporting disabled students and collaborating with the campus community to remove barriers to educational access and embrace the University’s values of equity and inclusion. We believe that an accessible environment universally benefits everyone.

The team at DSP includes two dedicated Disability Specialists for Graduate Students who are here to support you.

The Graduate Specialists also conduct outreach and network with departments and faculty and the Graduate Division to create and refine policies and practices in support of campus equity and inclusion.
