    Our Goal

    AAS 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 actively work to:

    • Eliminate any barrier that could hinder a student’s success and feeling of belonging in the university setting.
    • Advocate for spaces, programs, and services that are not only accessible but inclusive.
    • Hear the concerns of students and advocate on their behalf if needed.
    • Foster the confidence in students so that they learn to advocate for themselves in the university setting and beyond.
    • Encourage and support academic achievement, personal and professional development, accountability, and lifelong learning for all students with disabilities.
