Greetings from Student Disability Services (SDS)!
I am excited to share that January 2017 marks the end of an era, and the beginning of a new journey, for SDS at Miami University when the office moves from the Campus Avenue Building into newly renovated space in the Shriver Center. This move is monumental for SDS as it will bring services and resources to the heart of campus, and allow for improved outreach to students, faculty, and staff.
SDS is excited, also, to be continuing our close relationship with the Rinella Learning Center, as both offices will share office suites, a conference room, and common areas in 304 Shriver. In our new space, the SDS staff have plans to implement trainings and information sessions on a variety of topics, provide students with a comfortable place to relax and learn about new technology, and partner with IT Services to provide an adaptive technology lab within the AccessMU Center which will open adjacent to our space in August 2017. Our staff will be showcasing the new space with open houses during the spring semester, and we have also been selected to host next year’s Ohio Association of Higher Education and Disability annual conference in October 2017!
We wish everyone a smooth close to fall semester, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to our new space in January!
J. Andrew Zeisler, Director
