Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Stanford University is committed to supporting a diverse community that includes students with disabilities, and to meeting its obligations to such students under the law.  The Office of Accessible Education (OAE), a unit within Student Affairs, provides academic and other accommodations for students with disabilities.  To assist students to be able to participate in the various programs, services, and activities of the institution, the OAE requires the support, cooperation, and partnership of faculty, other teaching staff, and administrators within the University community.

Information regarding the provision of disability-related accommodations is available at the OAE website:

Faculty members should not seek to make arrangements on their own to accommodate student disabilities.  If a student approaches you for a disability-related accommodation, please refer the student to the OAE.
