Disability Services Home

Emporia State University (ESU) values diverse experiences and perspectives and strives to fully include everyone who engages within ESU.  The University makes its offerings accessible to faculty, students, staff and visitors with disabilities in accordance with applicable state and federal laws including, but not limited to, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA).  ESU affirms its commitment to providing access to its programs, services, and facilities for individuals with disabilities. This commitment includes access to information technology (IT) we purchase, create, and use, such as websites, software, hardware, and media.

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is responsible for ensuring that students with documented disabilities are provided the tools, appropriate accommodations, and support from the University to fully participate in all aspects of campus life.

We have many students receiving services that have non-visible disabilities such as, learning disabilities, ADHD, psychological, or traumatic brain injury; and have visible disabilities such as, blind/low vision, deaf/hard-of-hearing, or physical.

To promote a welcoming environment to all ESU students, our office is dedicated to the principles of universal design.  These principles encompass all aspects of the academic environment by ensuring that facilities, programs, activities, materials, and equipment are accessible and usable by all students.
