Mission of the RCPD

Lead Michigan State University in maximizing ability and opportunity for full participation by persons with disabilities.


  • Assess and document disability, academic, and workplace needs
  • Build and facilitate individual plans for reasonable accommodations
  • Link individuals with technology, education, and resources
  • Extend independence through auxiliary aids, disability-related information, and self-advocacy


Disabilities need not preclude the achievement of goals and dreams. Rather, they mandate a greater level of creativity, commitment and a repertoire of compensatory techniques. The team of professionals at the RCPD is ready to assist students, employees, and visitors with resources that create an environment of opportunity. We value full integration of persons with disabilities throughout the university mission, programs, and services. We believe that persons with disabilities at MSU are as much in control of their educational/work experience as a person without a disability.
