The goal of the University Accessibility Center (UAC) is to provide programs and services to assist students who have disabilities to have access to the programs, services and information that they may need in their pursuit of excellence and the realization of human potential within the university environment. Assistance is provided to students who have physical, hearing, learning, attention and emotional concerns that may put them at a disadvantage compared to other students at the university in their quest for this goal.
