We have great news! Disability Concerns has changed our department name to Student Access and Accommodation Services. The new name reflects our commitment to providing an environment of social justice and inclusivity.
We are also changing to a digital ID card. This is the ID card students share with instructors to inform them of their accommodations. All old ID cards can be turned in to our office.
