Welcome to the Faculty/Staff section of our website! Disability Services works collaboratively with faculty, staff, and administration to ensure that the learning environment at UHV is accessible to all students, including those with disabilities. We serve in an advisory capacity to keep you well-informed about the roles, rights and responsibilities postsecondary institutions have towards supporting students with disabilities.

We hope that these resources will provide information about the services available through DS, and answer any questions you may have about the needs of students with disabilities.

The Office of Disability Services is here to help faculty and staff best serve our students with disabilities. You play an important role in the accommodation process. Together, we can create an inclusive educational environment where all students have equal opportunities for academic success and personal development.

If you have any questions about working with or accommodating a student with a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services – 361-570-4287, worleyc@uhv.edu , or stop by the office located in the Counseling Center, University West 132B.
