Shift in focus: student accessibility services

The dean of students office announced a unit name change, effective April 2. The former Student Disability Resources is now known as Student Accessibility Services. Associate vice president of student affairs and dean of students Vernon Hurte said the name change shifts the focus from a medical model of ‘disability’ toward creating a campus climate where all students have equitable access to education. The new email for the office is accessibility@iastate.edu.
