What we do
In Disability Support Services (DSS), we partner with faculty, staff and students to ensure that all aspects of the RISD community are accessible, equitable and inclusive of individuals with disabilities.
We work with students with documented disabilities that substantially limit one or more major life activities both short and long term, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. In doing so, we develop, arrange and provide appropriate accommodations that support student engagement with courses, programs, services and facilities.
How faculty can help
Faculty members play a key role in our community’s shared responsibility to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our office is here to support you in making a RISD education more accessible and equitable for students with disabilities.
