Fostering Success Through Access

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) provides services and accommodations to all UVM students who have current documentation of a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities, including but not limited to walking, talking, learning, hearing, or seeing.

SAS recognizes the importance of collaborations with students, faculty, staff, and the campus community.  The SAS staff strives to cultivate a universally designed environment by facilitating the removal of existing barriers for the full inclusion of people with disabilities.

Faculty

A major role of Student Accessibility Services is to communicate with faculty and students on constructing the best approach to implementing accommodations. Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis according to the needs of the individual student and the nature of the student’s course of study.  Whenever possible, SAS engages in an interactive process with students and faculty so that students with disabilities are allowed equal access to the University’s academic programs.

SAS staff members always welcome inquiries, feedback, and/or requests for consultation and collaboration.
