The Diversity and Access Office was created to advance Stanford University's commitment to diversity, and equal opportunity and affirmative action goals.

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 provides an array of services and resources designed to ensure equal opportunity, equal access, and to address bias and discrimination prohibited by law or official University policy. We also assist individuals with disabilities who have requests for accommodations in the workplace and access to Stanford facilities, programs and activities.
