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 hosted by the Student Ability Success Center (SASC) and is designed to establish disability partners and advocates across the San Diego State University campus. Upon completion of the Ability Ally seminar, allies 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 SASC, an ally will have the knowledge to support and provide resources to students who are not yet connected with the Student Ability Success Center.

Ability Ally sessions are fun and interactive. The seminar will provide a variety of disability-related topics, including the accommodation process, diagnoses, the impact of labeling, and disability etiquette. 

SASC will be hosting virtual sessions of Ability Ally throughout the semester. Ability Ally is a 4-hour seminar which will be split into two 2-hour sessions. A Part 2 session does not have to be completed the week after attending Part 1 (i.e., participants can choose a later Part 2 session).

The sessions will be held on Thursdays from 2 - 4 pm (Each session will be limited to 15 participants).
