Office of Accessibility

Our mission

The mission of the Office of Accessibility is to provide students with full access to and the opportunity for full participation in the academic environment.

We are advocates of social justice for students with disabilities and work to end oppression by examining the social, cultural and institutional barriers to inclusion of all students.

We embrace the diversity of our student body and celebrate a culturally sensitive and accessible campus through outreach, partnership, and advocacy with many university departments.
