“Lori Palmerton comes with just a huge wealth of experience in disability student services and disability studies,” said Springer. “This work is complex, and we are incredibly fortunate that she is now here with us at CSUSB after already running the DSS at CSU Fullerton. She is a valuable to this work within the CSU, across the state and sits on a number of CSU statewide committees. I firmly believe that our students are in the good hands of an equity centered leader.”

In this role, Palmerton provides vision, planning and implementation of a program for students with disabilities that creates equal access to the curriculum, activities and physical campus in adherence to university, state and federal regulations. As a member of the CSU Chancellor’s Office’s Services to Students with Disabilities committee, she is the primary liaison to the CSUSB campus community and the Chancellor’s Office, spending much of her time collaborating with faculty and staff to promote equity and support the academic success of the students.
