The Office of Accessibility Services
Our office provides assistance and accommodations for all students with documented physical, medical, learning, emotional and/or physical disabilities both temporary and permanent.
We were previously known as the Office of Disability Services (ODS) but recently changed the name to the Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) in an effort to best reflect the changes in how disability and accessibility are perceived in the current field of disability services. In the coming months both OAS and ODS will be used until our transition is complete sometime during the Fall semester of 2020. OAS aims to foster wellness and an accessible learning environment as well as promote accessibility, equity, inclusion, and diversity.
OAS strives to empower students through the development of self-advocacy and independence skills. Our goal as a student service service office is to increase disability and accessibility awareness throughout the campus community and beyond that is consistent with the current social model of disability services. Kean University has a strong commitment to full inclusion and equal opportunity for all persons with disabilities. The University adheres to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Every effort is made by our friendly and professional staff to provide every student with the opportunity to participate in all areas in college life.
