Welcome to Disability Services!
Disability Services is designed to provide access to an equitable educational experience for students. We are committed to helping students manage their disabilities through academic, dining, and housing accommodations, supported by inclusive institutional policies.
The work of Disability Services is informed by federal legislation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) laws, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Iowa law. The department works to integrate best practices in the area of Disability Services in accordance with the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD).
We strive to be inclusive in our work with each student by practicing careful listening, affirming their experience, and working together to create effective solutions. Disability Services is a part of the Center for Academic Enrichment (CAE).

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This is the 75th observance of NDEAM and the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). NDEAM celebrates America's workers with disabilities and reminds employers of the importance of inclusive hiring practices. More information can be found on NDEAM's Department of Labor website.
