Point Park University's Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) exists to address present or potential disability-related barriers on campus. Using relevant legislation (the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504, etc.), progressive disability models (social models, disability justice, etc.), and, most importantly, student's lived experiences as guides, we serve campus by:
- providing one-on-one access consultation to students determine eligible, reasonable accommodation within the student's specific context.
- leading campus by developing access-related policy development.
- educating campus on disability rights, identity, and allyship.
- collaborating with university offices and entities to ensure alignment to current accessibility standards.
OAS is excited to partner with all Point Park students regardless of their instructional mode (in-person or online programs), their full or part-time status, their school of study, or even to discuss on-campus employment-related concerns. NOTE: OAS only discusses non-benefits eligible student employment concerns including graduate assistantships, work study, internships, apprenticeships, and other part-time, on-campus, student positions (If you are classified as a part-time or full-time employee by HR, please contact Sharon Berardelli (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explore reasonable, employment accommodation).
