What is our Purpose?
Disability Services and Programs (DSP) is the unit at USC responsible for ensuring equal access for students with disabilities in compliance with state and federal law. DSP serves undergraduate, graduate and professional students; on-ground and on-line students; and students in all credit-granting courses and programs of study.
What is our Mission?
The DSP team is committed to serving the USC community through: ensuring equal access, removing disability-related obstacles, supporting civil rights, and increasing education and awareness on behalf of students with disabilities.
How do we Practice?
DSP strives to provide a welcoming and mutually respectful environment for our students, campus partners, our staff and the broader USC community. To that end, DSP welcomes interactions with all its constituencies in person, or via telephone, email, or virtual platform, that are respectful and that serve to professionally meet the needs of our students and the campus community.
DSP reserves the option to limit or place boundaries around interpersonal interactions that do not meet the office’s expectations for professional, respectful communication.
