Disability Services for Students has several volunteer opportunities. Your support is appreciated. If you belong to an organization or are taking a course that requires volunteer opportunities, consider DSS.

These volunteers write or use a word processor to record responses for students with dysgraphia, blindness, cerebral palsy, etc. Scribes may also fill in the bubbles on scantron sheets. Volunteering to be a scribe is limited to graduate students, faculty and staff.

These volunteers drive students with temporary mobility conditions such as broken legs, surgeries, or for students using crutches, etc. Volunteers must have a good driving record, a valid driver's license, and attend a brief training. Any student, staff or faculty member may volunteer to drive.
