Our Commitment to Equal Opportunity:

Through the guidance and frameworks outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (2008), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, otherwise qualified persons with disabilities are assured equal access to programs, opportunities, and activities at the University of Rhode Island (URI). For students, an otherwise qualified individual with a disability is a person who, with or without DAI approved reasonable accommodations, meets the essential requirements for the receipt of services or participation in programs or activities provided by the University.

Disability is a component of diversity, equity and inclusion, therefore, accessibility is a community-wide expectation. Full participation and integration of people with disabilities requires the cooperative efforts and a shared responsibility among all University departments, offices, and personnel.
