The Diversity and Access Office has two primary missions:

  1. To oversee University compliance with nondiscrimination and equal opportunity laws (including but not limited to Title VI, Title VII, and Title IX), as well as the regulations relating to affirmative action. This includes collecting, monitoring, reporting, and analyzing personnel data regarding the hiring, promotion, and retention of women and minorities.
  2. To oversee University compliance with federal and state disability-related laws, including (but not limited to) the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. This includes providing certain non-academic services (and accommodations) to students with disabilities, and providing assistance and information to staff and faculty with disabilities needing workplace accommodations. The office also provides auxiliary aids and services to the public visiting Stanford and attending public events. In addition, the office monitors disability access on campus and provides information regarding web accessibility.
