Reviewed and Revised November 2016
Disabilities Services is charged with providing services and accommodations to qualified students with disabilities attending, or planning to attend, Weber State University (WSU). Disability Services supports WSU’s overall mission by concentrating our efforts on the University’s Core Themes of Access and Learning.
ACCESS: Through an individualized assessment process, Disability Services will work with the student to identify any disability related limitations, providing appropriate accommodations designed to overcome any potential barriers to learning. Disability Services takes a proactive role in improving the overall campus environment for people with disabilities by supporting and encouraging the elimination of barriers to facilities, programs, and resources.
LEARNING: Disability Services provides specialized services, technology, and advisement to meet the specific needs of each student with a disability at WSU. Recognizing that a student’s own ability should be the determining factor in their academic success, we support individual independence and self-determination by emphasizing self-advocacy and personal responsibility.
