Mission Statement

Plymouth State University is committed to achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for students with disabilities. Assurance of this opportunity rests upon legal foundations established by federal law, specifically the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 including Section 504, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008. By federal law, a person with a disability is any person who: has a physical or mental impairment, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. We are committed to helping students to maximize their potential while helping them to develop and maintain independence through self-determination and self-advocacy.  (Rights and Responsibilities of Students with Disabilities.)
