Welcome to the University of West Florida (UWF), where our mission is to provide students with access to a high-quality learning experience through teaching, scholarship, research, and public service. UWF provides individualized support services to encourage full participation for students with disabilities.
The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) views disabilities as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and to our UWF community. We are committed to the full inclusion of students with disabilities in all curricular and co-curricular opportunities as mandated by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act. We work collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to provide reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. We acknowledge that classroom and campus accessibility needs and considerations are expanding as more classes and campus experiences incorporate online and technological components. We are available to discuss any course or campus barriers that may be preventing access to education and an equitable campus experience for our students.
The SDRC offers a variety of accommodations and services for students with documented disabilities including learning disabilities, deaf/hard of hearing, blind/low vision, mobility limitations, ADHD, psychiatric and medical conditions. Some of the accommodations and services provided by SDRC include:
It is the student’s responsibility to request disability related services and accommodations through the SDRC office.
Give to the Disabled Student Scholarship (Eligible for 100% Match)
This scholarship will benefit students meeting enrollment requirements of UWF who have a documented disability and significant financial need. Your gift will be doubled if we reach our goal! The Johnson Scholarship Foundation will give UWF a grant of $6,200 if we raise $6,200 for the Disabled Student Scholarship by 5/1/15. The total impact will be $12,400 in scholarship support for students with disabilities.
Thank you for considering a gift to open the doors of opportunity for students with disabilities!
