The Mission of the Office of Disability Services (ODS) is to assist students with documented disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations and services that ensures equal access to all programs, activities, and related benefits of the University’s educational and professional programs. The Office of Disability Services works in collaboration with students to determine appropriate reasonable accommodations based upon the individualized needs of the student. ODS acts as a resource and works in cooperation with faculty and other university departments. We strive to empower, support and guide our diverse community in achieving, promoting and fostering independence, self-advocacy and success. ODS is committed to providing access for all students with documented disabilities to all programs, activities and related benefits of the University’s educational and professional programs, in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990, as amended in 2008) and applicable state law.
