Disability word with Dis Crossed out saying ability‌‌

Hello and welcome to Drake University. We are glad you are here.  Here at Drake, we are excited about our diverse student population. We realize that diversity is bigger than race and gender; it also includes differences such as disabilities. Because of this, we have an office dedicated with full time staff to help coordinate accommodations for our students with disabilities. The Disability Services Office works in partnership with students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University to eliminate or minimize barriers and facilitate inclusion on campus.
