The Office of AccessAbility Services (OAS) guides its work with a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion under the strategic plan of the University and the Division of Student Affairs. Universal Design, Social Model of Disability, and the concept that Disability is Diversity and that access is a human civil right are also guiding models within the OAS. OAS provides guidance to ensure equal access to all educational programs and activities at Eastern. The OAS facilities accommodations and support services to over 700 students with documented disabilities and temporary injuries.
The philosophy and mission of OAS is to facilitate both identification and removal of barriers (systemic, physical, attitudinal, institutional, and internalized) that impact folks with disabilities on Eastern's campus. The removal of barriers will promote the full participation and ensure access of individuals with disabilities. This will create a campus climate and culture that supports Disability is Diversity.
