A disability is a psychological, physical, or cognitive condition that substantially limits a major life activity.
Examples of life activities are moving, communicating, seeing, hearing, thinking, sleeping, eating, etc. The disability can be temporary or permanent.
The mission of the Disability Services for Students Office (DSS) is to create a barrier-free environment, to support and celebrate the uniqueness and individualism of students, and to challenge stereotypes and myths about disability. The mission of the DSS office is aligned with the mission of the college, fostering self-determination, lifelong learning and social contribution. The DSS office respects all people regardless of disability, economic status, gender, race, religion, political affiliation, ethnic background or sexual orientation.
