Student Advisory Board

Purpose

The Student Advisory Board provides a student voice to the administration of Disability Services on matters of policy and procedure that governs the operation of Disability Services.  The role of the Student Advisory Board is to provide effective feedback on updates to services provided by the staff in Disability Services and to provide suggestions for improvements to service delivery and general campus access. All final decisions about implementation of suggestions shall be made by the professionals providing the services, with respect to legal requirements, university policies, service priorities, and the availability of resources and staffing.

(Note: The Student Advisory Board does not address individual student or faculty concerns with Disability Services.  Individual concerns should follow the formal methods of reporting their concerns to the appropriate Disability Services staff or campus ADA coordinator and to actively participate in the process to resolve the concerns as per Disability Services procedures and the Student Rules related to disability accommodations and grievances.)
