Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Director's Welcome

On behalf of the university, and as the ADA and 504 Coordinator, I would like to welcome you to Arkansas State University, Disability Services. Disability Services focuses on facilitating opportunities to stimulate and create a barrier free environment, eliminating academic, social, and physical obstacles which impede students' access to a higher education. We believe every student has the right to achieve to their highest ability academically, socially, and intellectually. It is important for individuals who anticipate attending ASU to acquaint themselves with our facilities, grounds, rehabilitation services, academic requirements, support services and specific costs. This insight will assist in ensuring academic success.

Prospective and newly admitted students with disabilities have every opportunity to achieve at ASU. The campus offers a variety of programs to ensure student participation in diversified campus activities. These activities address gender, disability, diversity, international, and cultural issues. The University is committed to providing guidance and information and assisting students in making timely preparation and plans for attending college. Other services offered include assistance in evaluating ones strengths and weaknesses and encouraging independence for managing daily academic and non-academic routines. These services are designed to create a successful college experience at ASU.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jenifer Rice-Mason
Director of ASU Disability Services
ADA & 504 Coordinator
