Office for Disability Services

 

As part of George Mason University's continuing commitment to upholding the letter and spirit of the laws that ensure equal treatment of people with disabilities, the university established and maintains the Office of Disability Services. Under the administration of University Life, the center implements and coordinates reasonable accommodations and disability-related services that afford equal access to university programs and activities.

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is available to serve all students with disabilities, including those with cognitive (e.g., learning, psychological, and closed head injury), sensory, mobility, and other physical impairments.

As part of the Office of University Life's commitment to recognizing and honoring the richness of diversity at Mason, the Office of Disability Services (ODS) staff members actively participate in the campus-wide diversity dialogue. The ODS welcomes and encourages all students with disabilities, whether registered with the ODS or not, to identify themselves as members of the disability community, and to engage in the diversity dialogue on campus by getting involved with ODS and other multicultural programs and activities.
