A New England transplant, Scott grew up in New York but has lived in the area for over 10 years. He received his Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction (focused on inclusion and belonging) and M.Ed in elementary education from Boston College. He joined the SAS team from Brandeis, where he was the interim director for Student Accessibility Support and an accessibility specialist for graduate students. He has also worked as an adjunct lecturer at Boston College and City College of New York (CCNY) where he taught and developed face-to-face, blended, and online courses. These courses covered a range of topics related to disability, inclusion, accessibility, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and special education.

As SAS Director, Scott is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of SAS, as well as working with the SAS team to accomplish our mission and goals. He also works with   students, develops staff and faculty, revises and develops new policies, and collaborates with campus partners. He is particularly interested in working on issues related to inclusion, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), accessibility, and belonging. He is also passionate about working with students and faculty in creating classrooms that are both accessible and inclusive.

Scott’s door is always open (except when meeting with students of course!), so please feel free to come on by to discuss accommodations, share your experiences, or just chat!
