Student Ability Success Center (SASC) in the Division of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity provides a full range of accommodations and services to over 2,000 students with physical, psychological, and learning disabilities, facilitating equal access to the educational process. This is accomplished through direct service support, review of campus accessibility, adaptive technology, assessment, test accommodation, and a variety of other services. Accommodations vary according to types of disabilities and may include sign language interpreting; provision of alternative formats, such as electronic text or Braille; computer-assisted real-time captioning; test accommodation; advising; assistive computer technology; cart transportation service, and numerous other services. Provision of these academic support services, technology, and advocacy promotes the retention and graduation of students with disabilities at SDSU.
Under the lead direction of SASC's Special Programs Coordinator, who is responsible for all aspects of daytime and after-hours cart transportation services, the After-hours Transportation Assistant is responsible for driving carts after regular business hours to carry out existing transportation schedule and for providing office and clerical support for the coordination of SASC's cart transportation services after regular business hours, to ensure accommodation of students with mobility impairments via SASC's golf carts. The responsibilities of this position include but are not limited to driving the carts, supervising student assistant cart drivers, answering requests for new and changed services, and updating schedules. Since the After-hours Transportation Assistant will be the only staff person present for the majority of their work time, they must be capable of making independent decisions using good judgment.
The incumbent will also provide general supervision, especially in emergency situations (e.g., an agitated student for which public safety needs to be notified, a power outage that interrupts the testing process), for student assistants working after-hours at SASC.
