Disability Services for Students
Aloha [in the Hawaiian language this is translated to mean a very deep and heartfelt welcome] to the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, Disability Services web site. You will be hopefully joining our campus family here on the "Big Island" of the island chain of Hawaii. Indeed, the islands are as beautiful as the clearest blue waters and as gentle as the calmest summer breeze.
The University of Hawaii at Hilo (UH Hilo) is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in the education of student with disabilities as required by Section 504 regulations at 34 CFR Part 104, which are enforced by the U.S. Department of Education, and all other federal/state laws and regulations as well as University policies and procedures related to non-discrimination. UH Hilo promotes a learning environment free of illegal discrimination. No qualified student, on the basis of a disability, shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity. The Disability Services office provides leadership and support toward achieving a comprehensive and institution-wide program as it guides, directs, assists and monitors the administration, faculty, and staff to ensure fair and equal treatment of all students with disabilities. Any qualified student with a disability may request accommodations by contacting the Disability Services office at 933-0816 (V), 933-3334 (TTY), email@example.com or through this website. For anyone needing any information regarding the policies, procedures and guidelines concerning students with disabilities, you may visit the Disability Services' website http://hilo.hawaii.edu/studentaffairs/uds/resources.php.
