J. Scott Self   Calendar-icon


Professor Self’s primary focus is to develop interventions to ensure access to a variety of underrepresented or disadvantaged student populations, and to protect the civil rights of students with disabilities at ACU.  Alpha students should schedule to meet with Prof. Self for any reason, but especially if they need assistance in…

    • Requesting accommodations for a disability
    • Connecting to other university resources
    • Coaching related to disabilities and other barriers
    • Assistance in determining whether a student has a disability
    • Problem-solving issues with majors/career choice, faculty issues, and university policies

Debbie Stewart

Administrative Coordinator

Ms. Stewart is the glue that holds the whole program together.  While much of her duties relate to the administrative needs of the program, she meets with students constantly. If you need to meet with Ms. Stewart to fill out forms, or request a tutor, you need not schedule an appointment.  But it is a very good idea to schedule an appointment if you need assistance in:

  • Setting up tutoring
  • Sign up for accommodated exams
  • Finding appropriate documentation for disability
  • Assistance in securing accommodations
  • Schedule a meeting with Prof. Self
