Disability Strategies and Resources

 

  • Presidential Commission on Disability Strategies and Resources

    The purpose of this commission is to recommend programs, strategies, initiatives, and resources to ensure that persons with disabilities are not confronted with barriers to full participation in all aspects related to University life and to ensure that the University’s programs and services are inclusive to constituents with disabilities. 

  • Student Disability Services

    SDS is the first contact for students with disabilities to arrange accommodations and locate campus and community resources. 

    The Academy for Inclusive Learning

    The Kennesaw State University Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth offers a fully inclusive 2 year college experience to students with intellectual or developmental disabilities who do not meet the university requirements for admission as a degree seeking student. 

    Human Resources

    Kennesaw State University provides reasonable accommodations to enable the hire and retention of qualified employees who are able to perform the essential functions of their positions. Any person wishing to self-identify as disabled or request a reasonable accommodation due to a disability should contact Human Resources. 

    Accessibility Resources

    Whether you are a student or staff member with a disability or a staff or faculty member serving our students, accessibility is a vital piece of what we do at Kennesaw State. At KSU we believe that we all benefit when everyone, regardless of ability, has equitable access to the resources they need to be successful

  • Active Minds of Kennesaw State (Active Minds)

    Active Minds is a grass-roots student led organization with the mission to elevate good mental health on the college campus as well as eliminate the stigma and walls of silence surrounding mental illness. 

    OWLS American Sign Language Club (OWLS ASL)

    Owls American Sign Language Club primarily exists to bridge the communication and cultural gap between KSU students and the Deaf community. We strive to create and promote positive learning experiences for students. 

    Neurodiversity Advocates of Kennesaw (NAK)

    Neurodivergent Advocates of Kennesaw seeks to promote neurodiversity, which in this case is disability culture and community as it relates to brain-based disabilities such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Tourette's Syndrome. Neurodiversity is the belief that such disabilities are in fact disabilities but are not defects and are natural variations of the human brain that should be accepted and not seen as diseases to be cured. The Neurodiversity Movement is part of the greater Disability Rights Movement.
