About

Disabled Students' Program 260 Cesar E. Chavez Student Center

The Disabled Students’ Program (DSP) provides services to meet the unique educational needs of regularly enrolled students with permanent or temporary disabilities. Our staff includes disability specialists, service providers, and accessibility experts who serve our students with disabilities throughout their educational career.

DSP is under the umbrella of the Equity and Inclusion division, as disability is a part of the diversity fabric. While the primary focus and mission of DSP is to serve documented disabled students, DSP staff also work closely with faculty, administrators, and staff to build a more accessible learning environment. DSP outreach also works to benefit students who may not have self-identified a need for accommodations and who may not even be aware of their disability rights.
