Director's Welcome


The Student Disability Services at the University of Iowa endeavors to ensure a fair learning environment where students are able to succeed based on their own efforts and initiative, unhampered in their academic pursuits by disadvantages associated with their particular disability. 

Our staff members work with students, faculty, and other resources of the university to coordinate accommodations for which students are entitled under federal legislation.  In doing so we affirm the worth of each individual and the spirit of diversity inherent in an inclusive university.

In all our professional interactions we strive to provide clear, timely information, and to be supportive of our students as they pursue their education.  We encourage self-advocacy for students and will assist faculty in meeting the needs of all University of Iowa students.

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff.
