UMSL Health, Counseling and Disability Access Services joins the rest of our university community in expressing our care and concern for everyone who has been impacted by the difficult circumstances of the past weeks and months. At a time when we are collectively feeling the impact of a global pandemic, we are now facing the sadness, pain, frustration and anger of our nation’s longstanding history of systemic discrimination and racially motivated injustices. While the tragedies, most recently in Minneapolis and Atlanta, can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that tragedies like this are especially injurious to members of our African American community and other people of color. It is normal to experience a wide range of emotions when experiencing these events. Please know that we are committed to providing supportive care to all UMSL students, particularly those who have been impacted by these experiences.
We stand ready to provide sensitive and compassionate care for your physical and mental health needs. We currently provide limited in person services, but are readily available for secure and confidential virtual meetings with all clinical staff, as well as hosting weekly support group sessions. Additionally, we hope that the resources and services available on our website are of assistance. We sincerely invite you to contact us if you, or someone you know, needs support with coping and healing in these trying times.
Welcome to Disability Access Services at UMSL. The mission of DAS is to acknowledge the uniqueness of each student as a valuable member of the UMSL community. Recognizing UMSL's commitment to equal access of education, we strive to ensure full and equal participation in all education opportunities by:
- Providing individualized appropriate accommodations and services
- Maintaining a high level of involvement with campus administrators, faculty, and staff
- Helping students with disabilities develop and maintain independence and self-advocacy skills for college and beyond
For further information regarding disability access at the university, please review the University Collected Rules and Regulations. To learn more about the accommodations and services we provide, check out our Services for Students page.
DAS is staffed by two dedicated team members who provide assessments and ongoing support. We're dedicated to making a difference in the lives of students by providing exceptional service, empathy, and advocacy. We're located on the lower level of the Millennium Student Center on UMSL's North Campus.
If you are in need of our services, feel free to contact us! Current UMSL students can send us a secure message through the health portal at health.umsl.edu. All other inquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (314) 516-5671.
Report Campus Accessibility Barrier
Please report any barrier to accessibility on UMSL's campus. You may also report by clicking the construction barrier image to the right. This image can be found on multiple pages for added ease of access. UMSL wants to make most of the college experience to our students, regardless of ability. By having the UMSL community report accessibility barriers we're extending our efforts to address any disparities. Disability Access Services has partnered with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to bring you this option, as well as to provide a grievance process should you feel your needs are not being met.
