Our Team

Each DSS staff member brings a unique, specialized set of skills to the office and, by extension, our student population.

We represent a broad knowledge base covering areas ranging from administrative expertise to academic training and cultural outreach.

We are very much looking forward to working with you, and we welcome the opportunity to address any questions that you might have about our office or the university as a whole. Students can identify their DSS point of contact by college or school affiliation.

The DSS  staff are available remotely to answer your questions about accommodations. Email questions to [email protected] or call (202) 994-8250. You may  also schedule a virtual appointment with a DSS team member:
