    The mission of Hodges University’s Disability Support Services is to ensure all students with special needs are given equal access to educational opportunities, programs and activities, regardless of the type, extent or degree of the disability, and to promote awareness, understanding and support within the university community.

    To achieve its mission, Disability Support Services supports the following principles:

    • To develop an environment in which independence is afforded to students with disabilities to enhance their intellectual and emotional development and growth.
    • To improve the educational development of students with disabilities and to enhance understanding and support within the campus community.
    • To ensure the creation and maintenance of an accessible physical environment and a supportive psychological environment.
    • To establish a responsible advocacy to confirm that the campus community is aware of disabled students’ needs and to respond appropriately to these special needs.
    • To educate the university’s personnel in the compliance regulations and legal requirements outlined under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disability Act of 1990 (ADA).

    The Director of Counseling serves as the ADA coordinator for the university. Students with a disability concern can make arrangements with the coordinator for any needed assistance, to receive orientation to the institution, or to discuss any necessary support required for completion of an academic program.
