Disability Services

This site is for anyone who wants to know more about Disability Services at the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK). However, it is not meant to replace direct communication so please feel free to contact our office anytime.

About Us

Disability Services aims to provide information, guidance and support to disabled people who work and study at the University and to those who aspire to do so.

The service works with University departments and external partners in order to ensure that the specific requirements of disabled people are incorporated in all practices and procedures. The Office of Disability Services is the University of Nebraska at Kearney's center for coordinating services and accommodations to ensure accessibility and usability of all programs, services, and activities of UNK by people with disabilities - and is a resource for information and advocacy toward their full participation in all aspects of campus life.
