The mission of Bakersfield College DSPS is to support student success, learning, and development through the provision of individual services and the facilitation of accommodations for students with disabilities; through collaboration with internal and external partners to identify and remove barriers to foster an all-inclusive campus; and through the provision of institution-wide advisement, consultation, and training on disability-related topics. We recognize disability as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and to the campus as supported by our College’s Mission and Strategic Goals, Strategic Initiatives and Core Values.
If you are a student with a disability, you have unique educational needs which may require special assistance. We understand and are sensitive to that and furthermore believe that you will find the entire Bakersfield College community ready to work with you to help you realize your personal, academic, and career goals. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. The main DSPS Office is located in Student Services Building 1st floor, Counseling Center and can be reached by phone at 395.4334. You have our best and heartfelt wishes for your success at Bakersfield College.
