Oregon State University recognizes diversity as a core value that enhances teaching, scholarship and service as well as the ability to welcome, respect and interact with other people. Providing accommodations is part of this core value, and it is the law, so the Disabilities Access Services and Office of Equity and Inclusion staff designed this training to explain the process and offer expert guidance.
This training provides faculty and staff with information to understand classroom accommodations. The online training connects the campus community to extensive resources to improve communication throughout the accommodations process.

OSU's Office of Equal Opportunity and Access
The Office of Equal Opportunity and Access is committed to success for the entire university community through equality, fairness, and understanding. Our work is guided by three principles:
- Equity—Ensuring equality of opportunity in all that we do. We strive to ensure equality in terms of the opportunity to become a member of the Oregon State University learning and working community; in one’s opportunity to participate in and contribute to the work; in one’s opportunity to participate in and benefit from the programs, services, and activities; and in terms of the communities of the state that are served by the University.
- Inclusion—Working together to create an organization that enables success for everyone with whom we interface. We create and sustain this environment through interpersonal interactions that explicitly support and affirm the inherent dignity and uniqueness of individuals and communities, and through institutional efforts that address systemic barriers to inclusion.
- Diversity—Recognizing that a diversity of people, perspectives, experiences, and thought is essential to a compelling research, scholarship, and learning environment. We aim to develop policies and practices that promote and enhance diversity in all University endeavors, striving to benefit maximally from our different ideas, perspectives, and ways of being, knowing, and doing.
