Instead, a local service coordinator, A Bridge to Independence, will be located on campus to assist students in obtaining services. The change will be fully implemented by fall 2019. The attendant-care program, operated through the University’s Office for Accessibility Services, formerly OSD, provides specialized care to students with physical disabilities to assist with the activities of daily living (e.g. meal assistance and personal care).
