SSD Name Change
Over the summer SSD will be changing our name to Disability and Access (D&A)! This new name was selected in consultation with input from students, faculty and staff. We will be transitioning to Disability and Access over the summer but our goal and priorities remain the same; to ensure students with disabilities have equal access to their academic experiences at UT.
