Peer Assistance for Support and Success (PASS)

The mission of The Office of Accessibility’s Peer Assistance for Support and Success (PASS) program is for students with disabilities to get involved on campus, get connected with campus resources, feel supported, and learn invaluable skills and strategies to ensure, not only academic success, but lifelong success. The program promotes inclusivity through workshops and events each semester.
