What We Do

Mission Statement: The Office of Equity, Diversity and Compliance (EDC) and the Office of Disability Services (ODS) are charged to ensure that the dignity of students, employees and campus visitors is upheld when equal access to education and employment is guaranteed, respectful treatment is assured, and an appreciation of differences is fostered for all members of the university community.
