Spring Term 2020 - COVID19 Response

All Disability Services accommodations, intakes, and appointments for Spring Term will be provided remotely per The State of Oregon's Stay Home, Save Lives Executive Order and the University's response to COVID19.

 

We understand this is a difficult time for many and remote services are not the preferred method, nor can they be truly accessible for every student.  However, it is imperative that we follow these guidelines to ensure the safety of our students, staff, faculty and community.  

Disability Services staff is working diligently to ensure every qualified student receives the accommodations necessary to provide them with equitable education services and learning opportunities during this time.  

If you have questions please feel free to email us at access@oit.edu.

You may also contact us by phone:

Voicemails will be returned within two business days. 


Functions


Oregon Tech's Disability Services office coordinates academic adjustments and auxiliary aids for students with disabilities.

Students desiring services to accommodate a disability should contact Disability Services well in advance of entering Oregon Tech. Appropriate documentation of an impairment that might constitute a disability as defined in the relevant laws will typically be required. The student will meet with Disability Services staff to determine eligibility and appropriate academic adjustments and aids. Program staff will assist students in communicating information about needs and adjustments to instructors.

 

Mission:


Disability Services facilitates access to Oregon Tech programs and services for individuals with disabilities through accommodations, education, consultation and advocacy.

Vision:


Disability Services strives to promote a diverse, inclusive, supportive, and accessible learning and working environment for individuals with disabilities. The vision of the office is to promote disability as diversity and ensure individuals with disabilities have full access, inclusion and belonging in the Oregon Tech community.
