As the new disability services coordinator at the University of Michigan-Flint, Harvey “Chip” Evans oversees services that ensure equal opportunity to students with disabilities and helps to promote a welcoming campus environment for any student requiring accommodations.
That help can come in a variety of forms, from campus transportation to a test-taking center. It’s technology, though, that has Evans most excited. “The technology that we utilize now, such as our Read & Write literacy software, is so helpful to students,” Evans said. “We’re constantly looking to bring in new technologies that will help our students—not just students with learning disabilities, but all students.”
