The Diversity and Access Office was created to advance Stanford University's equal opportunity and affirmative action goals and commitment to diversity. Our office ensures University compliance with federal, state and local regulations concerning non-discrimination and disability access. To accomplish our mission, we work collaboratively with vice presidents, deans, department chairs, administrative managers and human resources staff who have direct responsibility for achieving the University's objectives. Our office also provides an array of services and resources designed to ensure equal opportunity and address bias and discrimination prohibited by law or official University policy, as well as assists individuals with disabilities who have requests for accommodations in the workplace and access to Stanford facilities, programs and activities.
