Faculty and Staff Resources

Welcome to the resource page for SDSU Faculty and Staff.  We invite you to use these resources to discover opportunities for designing learning environments that are inclusive of all students.  The content here will provide  important information about individuals with disabilities, recommended instructional strategies in the classroom, and creating accessibility in your courses. 

Our mission at Student Ability Success Center is to provide mandated accommodations and auxiliary services to students who are registered with SASC and currently enrolled at SDSU. Your participation and collaborative efforts in providing these services is very important in furthering students' academic achievement and success.

If you have additional questions or concerns, contact Student Ability Success Center at (619) 594-6473. You will be referred to an appropriate counselor or administrator for consultation.


Ability Ally 

 Ability Ally is based upon the Campus' Safe Zone model and is designed to establish partners across the San Diego State University campus. Upon completion of the session, an Ability Ally will be able to create a safe, supportive and understanding environment for individuals with diverse abilities. In addition to supporting students who are already connected with Student Ability Success Center, an Ability Ally will have the knowledge to support and provide resources to students who are not yet connected with Student Ability Success Center.

Ability Ally sessions are fun and interactive, and provide an overview of the accommodation process, understanding of disabilities and diagnoses, as well as the impact of labeling and importance of etiquette, to share a few of the topics.


Ability Ally sessions have been cancelled for the Spring 2020 semester.



For Faculty and Staff with Disabilities

Faculty and staff with qualifying disabilities should contact the Office of Employee Relations and Compliance for disability-related accommodations in the workplace. If you have mobility limitations, the Office of Employee Relations and Compliance can assist with on-campus cart service (based on availability).
