Historical NoteReturn to Top
The University of Idaho established Student Disability Services in 1977. This sub-department was a result of the Rehabilitation Act in 1973, which ruled all federally funded institutions provide accommodations to all programs for students with disabilities. The act also made it law where all newly constructed buildings have to be equipped with facilities for those with disabilities. However, it did not state that buildings prior to the act passing must renovate to provide accessibility.
This service was created under the larger Student Advisory Service department. In 1977, there were approximately fifty students attending the university who had disabilities. Dianne S. Milhollin became the first coordinator of the services and programs. Milhollin additionally ran substance abuse programs and was an advisor to the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Milhollin worked to renovate campus facilities to meet accessibility initiatives, the university library being one of the first.
Milhollin retired in 2003, and passed away on September 15, 2018. The university's Student Disability Services eventually transformed into the Center for Disability Access and Resources (CDAR).
