Student Accessibility Services
Welcome to Student Accessibility Services (SAS). It is the mission of SAS to ensure equal opportunity and access for members of the Ohio University Community. Central to this mission is the development of an academic environment that is accessible to all people without the need for adaptation. While working toward the goal of full inclusion, accommodations must still be provided on an individual basis.
This guide provides information about policies, procedures, and resources relevant to students registered with SAS and has been developed to assist you in accessing your academic accommodations and services. We encourage you to meet with your Accessibility Coordinator on a regular basis to discuss your educational goals and accessibility issues.
Countless students with disabilities from every college and academic program have graduated from Ohio University. Your engagement in your academic activities and the accommodation process will be a key factor to your success. Communicating openly and regularly with your Accessibility Coordinator is the best way to assure your equal access and assists SAS in supporting your success.
If you are taking summer classes don't forget to fill out a letter request form to let your instructors know about your accommodations.
We hope that your year concluded on a positive note and congratulations to the many of you who graduated this year! While many of you are away from Athens for the summer, we wanted to share an opportunity for you to provide feedback about the development of a University wide plan regarding Inclusion and Accessibility. The plan has been developed by the Presidential Advisary Council on Disability and Accessibility Planning (PACDAP) and will be presented as a recommendation to the President.
Whether you are in Athens or away, there are a couple of ways for you to provide your feedback:
PACDAP hosting a public forum on Tuesday, May 13, where the entire Strategic Plan will be presented and discussed. The forum will be held from 10:30-noon in Baker University Center 242.
For those who are unable to come, the forum will be streamed live http://www.ohio.edu/mediaserver/live.cfm?videoid=7e1714f38d2c
The revised version the Plan and a feedback form will be available online from May 15 – May 30 at:http://www.ohio.edu//equity/pacdap/loader.cfm?csModule=security/getfile&pageid=2342620
