The mission of Disability Support Services (DSS) is to empower, support, and advocate for students who experience disabilities by partnering with the University community in the provision of equal access to all curricular and co-curricular programs, facilities, services, and activities.

Disability Support Services (DSS) coordinates the support services for UAA students who experience disabilities, as well as provides resources for the university and community. Providing equal opportunities for students who experience disabilities is a campus-wide responsibility and commitment.
