The purpose of DS is to enable students to effectively receive equal learning opportunities that enable them to academically perform successfully. Accordingly, DS is committed to resolving the difficulties that students with special needs may face. Disabilities may include mobility, hearing, visual or phycological impairments.

Mobility-related disability entails the student’s inability to move around campus. To accommodate such a type of impairment, ramps are strategically founded across University buildings. Ramps are situated to allow wheelchair access to the various campus areas. University facilities, such as the cafeteria, are typically found on the ground floor. However, if a facility is located on the second or third floor, an elevator is available, which is the case with the library.

Hard of hearing disability may result in the student’s inability to follow a lecture and/or to take notes. Additionally, a common condition associated with those who are hard of hearing is speech difficulty. To address the hard of hearing disability, not only is a front row seat designated in every lecture room, the university also assigns a disability buddy who accompanies the student in all the lectures that need to be attended. He becomes the student note-taker and may also assist in other ways, such as repeating something the student said in a louder and clearer way.

Visual disability results in the student’s inability to move around the campus or to function effectively unless s/he Is accompanied.
