Affirmative Action

Indiana University is committed to both the spirit and letter of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination based on a disability in employment, public accommodations, public services (including education), transportation, and telecommunication. We strive to provide equal access in all areas of university life and activity to people with a wide range of disabilities.

The following resources are available on the Bloomington campus. For resources available on other IU campuses, contact the Affirmative Action Officer on that campus. See Campus Contacts for assistance.

Education Accommodations and Assistance
