Disability Policy & Studies
Disability Policy and Studies (DPS) is an office of the School of Health Professions at the University of Missouri. DPS is home to a number of projects related to employment, independent living, community integration, and access for people with disabilities. In general these projects do not provide direct services to persons with disabilities, but instead provide advice, training, and support to agencies and groups which provide those services. DPS at the University of Missouri primarily serves the states of Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas. It has been in existence since 1975.
