Students are our Priority

"Nothing About Us Without Us"
Individuals who experience disability have the right to confidentiality; it is your life, your education, your decision to request accommodation and use it in a manner that works best for you.
We believe it is a valuable and important process to develop self-advocacy skills as well as to learn how to make sure you get what you need. We are here to help.
