Cleveland State University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity institution. No person will be denied opportunity for employment or education or be subject to discrimination in any project, program or activity because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, handicap or disability, disabled veteran, Vietnam-era veteran or other protected veteran status.
Cleveland State University (CSU) is committed to providing an equal opportunity to all persons. The Office of Disability Services is designed to address the personal and academic issues of students and other persons with disabilities who participate in university programs and activities. A wide range of services is offered. Students receive such assistance until they graduate. The Cleveland State campus is largely accessible, and many of our renovated areas are barrier free.
The Office of Disability Services (ODS) provides assistance to both students and faculty in accommodating students with disabilities. This office serves as the primary resource for all student issues related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The office has a long history, dating before both the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act. It was created in 1970 to serve the needs of a growing number of students with disabilities on campus.
