The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is where Keene State College students with documented disabilities can arrange accommodations provided under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which enable equal access to academic and campus programs and activities.
The Office of Disability Services provides services to students with disabilities to ensure that all activities and programs are accessible. Through partnerships with students, faculty and staff, we promote self-awareness, self-determination and self-advocacy to provide opportunities for academic success. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on the basis of ability rather than disability.
Our goals are to:
- Coordinate and provide reasonable accommodations.
- Advocate responsibly for an accessible learning environment, through removal of informational, physical, and attitudinal barriers.
- Promote self-advocacy and self-determination, while reinforcing personal responsibility.
The office is located in the Elliot Center on the first floor of Elliot Hall and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
