WHAT WE DO
Our mission is in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. The NCCSD has three purposes:
- Provide technical assistance and information to anyone needing information about disability and higher education, including college students, their families, faculty, college administrators and staff, disability services professionals, researchers, and policymakers. We accomplish this through our national online clearinghouse and through our student group, DREAM. We also welcome questions and may contact us at any time.
- Collect information and do research about disability services at campuses in the United States, sharing findings with the public. For more information, see our research page.
- Report to the U.S. Department of Education about the current status of college students with disabilities in the U.S. We will make our findings available to the public, with our first report due in the fall of 2016.
The Center started December 1, 2015. Please watch this website for announcements as we start sharing resources, research, and programming that develops over the next few years! Be sure to be in touch with us using the Contact Us link if you have any questions or comments, and your feedback about this website is always welcome.
