Disability is an important aspect of diversity that is integral to our society and to the University of Michigan Dearborn campus.

Disability Services collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments. There may be times when there are aspects of the instruction or design of your courses that result in barriers to your inclusion or to accurate assessment of achievement. When that is the case, our office will work with you to arrange for accommodations.

Disability services is responsible for facilitating UM-Dearborn's compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other federal and state laws designed to remove barriers that may impede the progress of individuals with disabilities.
