Welcome to UD!
The University of Dallas welcomes students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities.
University Accessibility Services (UAS) serves a coordinating role in the University's
efforts to provide an accessible environment for all who come to the University. The
University affirms St. John Paul's observation that "people with disabilities must be enabled to participate in social life as far
as they can, and helped to fulfill all their physical, psychological and spiritual
potential." If you or someone you or someone you know plans to visit the University,
we are glad to assist to provide a more accessible environment and welcome any observations
of areas where we can improve.
Whether you are visiting the University to participate in a special event, considering
attending as a student, or just stopping in to have a drink at the Cappucino Bar,
the University is glad to help make the University more accessible. The primary point
of contact for accessibility questions is the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator. If you
have any questions or concerns, please feel to contact the Coordinator.
ADA/Section 504 Coordinator
Joshua Skinner, J.D.
Director, Office of Civil Rights and Title IX
Braniff Graduate Building 114
Direct: (972) 721-5056
Facsimile: (972) 265-5712
In addition, some special events will have additional University personnel appointed
as points of contact for accessibility questions.
In order to more adequately provide accessibility assistance, the University asks
that visitors with disabilities who plan to attend events on campus contact the ADA/Section
504 Coordinator at least 72 hours before the event. The University will then be able
to provide reasonable accommodations to those requesting assistance.
The University provides a wide variety of accommodations for students with disabilities
so as to make the University's programs and activities available. You can find out
more about student accommodations at Student Disability Services.
Staff and Faculty
The University also provides accommodations for staff and faculty with disabilities,
which are arranged through the Human Resources Department. Staff and employees can
find out more about and apply for disability accommodations by visiting the HR Department
or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
