Disability Services is committed to supporting students as they learn to self-advocate and negotiate the campus and academics at the University. The program provides a wide array of reasonable, appropriate accommodations for students with learning, physical, psychological, or medical challenges. Disability Services is also an office that serves the whole campus by providing consultation for teaching, working with and accommodating students with disabilities.

gender inclusive bathrooms

We trust that each individual knows which restroom is most comfortable and appropriate for them to use while on campus. Gender Inclusive Bathrooms are for EVERYONE, including individuals of all gender identities and expressions. The Campus Pride Committee has identified the Gender Inclusive Bathrooms around campus and has created a map to assist the community in locating them.
