Welcome to Disability Services
At the University of Alaska Southeast, providing equal opportunities for students who experience disabilities is a campus wide responsibility and commitment. We work together with faculty and students to identify individual needs and how to best accommodate those needs.
Academic services consitute an integral component of equalizing the post-secondary environment for students who experience disabilities. Disability Services (DSS) is responsible for coordinating services for UAS students who experience disabilities. DSS Also serves as a resource; providing information to the campus community. DSS Staff can provide further information about the services available.
When barriers do arise Disability Services assist in the identification of reasonable adjustments. DSS can provide details about services and accommodations that are available to qualified students with appropriate documentation. Early planning is encouraged and necessary to allow DSS staff adequate time to arrange for services. It is the student's responsibility to initiate contact with and provide the appropriate disability documentation to DSS.
Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Disability Services by phone, email, or in person. See below for campus contacts.

Alaska: I’ve lived in Ketchikan for most of my life. We moved here when I was about seven, from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. Zoiks how time flies! I absolutely love Alaska! I’ve been all over the state including: Palmer, Kodiak, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Metlakatla, Prince of Wales Island, and many points in-between.
I still want to see more! Yes the weather is adverse, the summers sometimes lack sunshine, but hey, where else can you experience all four seasons in five minutes, catch a 250 lb halibut, see 100 Bald Eagles in one setting, watch a pod of Killer whales swim through the channel, meet people from all over the world, and call it home?
My Job: I am a Student Services Coordinator on the Ketchikan Campus. I love working with people, helping them find their way through college, and especially hearing their stories. Students often come into my office and tell me how well, or not, they are doing at any given time in their academic career. It is in these conversations that students really get a chance to talk to someone about their dreams and their ambitions, their trials, defeats, and successes! I love to see the look on student’s faces when I tell them their goals and dreams are possible and that I can help them find the way to attain them. More than anything else, I love to see students succeed at their goals; to see them experience the joy of coming from a place of indecision and trepidation to a place of certainty and confidence.
My Life: I have a strong passion for film making and for writing. I have two favorite thoughts permanently affixed in my private and public life:
“I shall not pass this way again, any good thing I can do or any kindness I can show let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again” – Atienne De Grollet
