Disability Services for Students

A-TASC Force Training: DSS is piloting a professional development opportunity for CCRI faculty and staff – a semester long hybrid course addressing accessibility, disability, and culture.

The course will provide weekly online content and four in-person sessions at the Knight Campus on Friday afternoons from 12-4pm spaced throughout the semester’s weekly content.

Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a certification placed in their personnel file and materials that formally certify them as A-TASC Force graduates by DSS. Recipients may submit the course for ongoing professional development credits from accrediting institutions.

Regular enrollment opens on August 30th and closes on September 12th. Late enrollment ends September 23rd. To sign up for this opportunity contact Barbie Sanborn at or 401.455.6013.

Welcome back students! DSS hopes your Fall 2016 semester will be fun, educational and productive. Continuing students are encouraged to submit their Request for Accommodations forms as soon as they have registered for classes.
