Student Disability Services (SDS) assists students with physical, medical, mental health, and sensory disabilities to participate fully in the Cornell experience.
SDS staff members are responsible for:
- Establishing and disseminating criteria for disability services
- Meeting with students to discuss access needs
- Receiving and storing confidential disability documentation to support a student’s eligibility for disability services and accommodations
- Collaborating with faculty and staff regarding essential course and/or program requirements and appropriate reasonable accommodation
The role of SDS also includes educating the campus community about disability issues, and helping to create and sustain a welcoming, accessible, and supportive environment for all Cornell students.
SDS is a department of Cornell Health, and recently moved to Level 5 in the Cornell Health building on Ho Plaza.
