Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board provides a student voice to the administration of Accessibility Services on matters of policy and procedure that governs the operation of Student Accessibility Services.  The role of the Student Advisory Board is to provide effective feedback on updates to services provided by the staff in DAS and to provide suggestions for improvements to service delivery and general campus access.  All final decisions about implementation suggestions shall be made by the professionals providing the services, with respect to legal requirements, university policies, service priorities, and the availability of resources and staffing. 

(Note:  The SAB does not address individual student or faculty concerns with DAS.  Individual concerns should follow the formal methods of reporting their concerns to the appropriate DAS staff member to actively participate in the process to resolve the concerns as per DAS procedures and the Student responsibilities related to accommodations and grievances.)
