Mission and Vision of ADA Services

Our mission at Disability Services is to increase access to all programs and services sponsored or funded by Idaho State University. Our goals are:

  1. To coordinate and provide reasonable accommodations and related disability services for qualified individuals with disabilities,
  2. To advocate for an accessible and hospitable learning environment through removal of informational, physical, and attitudinal barriers, and
  3. To promote self-determination and personal responsibility for students with disabilities.

We envision a University of equal access. Equality is not won once, and Idaho State University is not barrier-free. Higher education becomes a level playing field only when students with disabilities assume the personal responsibility to advocate vigorously for their civil rights. We at Disability Services educate students, faculty, and staff whenever possible to make informed choices about their rights and responsibilities. Infinite diversity in infinite combinations enriches our world.
