Cuesta faculty has a key role in assuring that their classes are fully accessible to all populations. Depending on the student’s disability related barriers, faculty might be asked to allow for a wide range of reasonable accommodations as mandated by state and federal law.

Beyond legal compliance, universal design philosophy embodies the ideal that making the environment accessible for people with disabilities makes our world more user friendly for everyone.  For example, wheelchair ramps benefit many people beyond just those who have mobility limitations.

The primary role for DSPS staff is to provide Cuesta College students, faculty, staff and administration with guidance and “know how” for disability accommodations. Together, we can team up and answer any questions you might have regarding disability, faculty rights and accessibility.
