The mission of the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) is to achieve the full participation and integration of all students with disabilities at York College by ensuring equal access to programs, activities, and services. CSD facilitates a fulfilling college experience for students with disabilities through education, accommodations, awareness, collaboration, empowerment, and advocacy.

  • Facilitate students with disabilities' personal development and academic success by encouraging campus community connectedness and involvement in York’s programs and activities thereby increasing student persistence, retention, and graduation rates.
  • Provide education and consultation to the campus community about disability issues highlighting awareness, acceptance, sensitivity, and accessibility for students, faculty, staff, and visitors at York College.
  • Promote inclusive and accessible programs, services, activities, technology and facilities by positively communicating and influencing decision-making and practices to eliminate barriers that students with disabilities experience.
