Heading Into the Home Stretch!
With one week left in the semester, we know it’s a busy time of year!
Changes in SSD
There are lots of staffing changes happening at SSD. We are excited to welcome Katie Payne as a new Disabilities Services Coordinator at SSD. Meet Katie and learn more about her on our website. SSD is also saying goodbye to Disabilities Services Coordinator Kristen Anton and we are still in the process of hiring an Administrative Associate to work at our front desk.
Due to these staff changes, Disabilities Services Coordinators will not be offering office hours for the remainder of the semester. Your Coordinator will still be available via phone call, email or during their Walk hours. Office hours will resume in the spring semester.
We appreciate your patience as we adjust to all these changes!
