Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

Dear SAS Students,

I wish to take this opportunity to reassure you that SAS is working closely with other RWU
departments and faculty to be sure that your disability-related needs and concerns are met
during this challenging time. I know you may have questions that arise as the days go on and
wanted you to know that we will be here to support you. Please be diligent about monitoring your email as the University will continue to send important information on a regular basis. If you have specific questions that SAS can assist with, please email me.

Your faculty members are working with Instructional Design and IT to determine the best way
to deliver academic accommodations and to secure class accessibility. If specific questions arise
once the online platform is initiated, you may send them to me and I will work with the
appropriate campus departments to provide you with prompt information.

Sending you my best wishes and hopes for your continued good health.

Welcome To Roger Williams University! And welcome to Student Accessibility Services.   We call ourselves "SAS."

SAS works with students, faculty and administrators at RWU to ensure learning and living inclusiveness in all aspects of the student's experience.  We take care to promote equal opportunity for our students and we support our students toward their achievement of academic success and degree completion.   Students with documented disabilities who use the support services available to them are more likely to navigate a complex university, and are more likely to be academically successful.  This is true no matter which university or college a student attends.

Please contact us.  We care about you and are here to support your success.
