DSS Mission statement

Disability Support Services promotes and facilitates full access by empowering students with reasonable accommodations, training, collaboration, and innovative programming to create opportunities for diverse learning environments that are usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable and is an aspect of diversity that is essential to the larger mission of Dominican University.
While documentation is required, DSS recognizes that barriers exist and can create hardship for students with regard to having and presenting documentation. Thus, we encourage students to meet with the Disability Support Services Access and Accommodations Coordinator without the need for documentation in hand at the time of the first conversation. Determinations on individual documentation needs will be made during the initial meeting with the student.
