Missouri State University has been named a Top 10 school in the United States for students with disabilities by College Magazine.
The University’s President’s Council on Accessibility caught the attention of the judges for the list. The Council, which reports directly to President Clif Smart, is an advisory and oversight committee for accessibility issues.
Missouri State junior Sydney Davis, who is part of the programs to help students with disabilities, says that University’s Disability Resource Center is a tremendous help.
“Missouri State is a great school for students with disabilities,” Davis said in a statement. “The staff were so helpful when I came in to create my accommodation memo. They explained what options I had and made me feel prepared for the semester.”
Davis also says that Delta Alpha Pi, a campus group for students with disabilities, helps her fit into campus life.
“It’s a space completely inclusive and welcoming,” Davis said. “It’s the only organization on campus I’ve been able to connect with people who share the same struggles and experiences that having a disability brings.”
