ADA Compliance and Accessibility

OHSU welcomes people of all abilities. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we provide people with disabilities equal access to our programs, services and activities. 

How does OHSU comply with the ADA?

OHSU complies with the ADA civil rights law by creating an inclusive culture and accessible experiences for people with disabilities. Through the ADA Compliance program, OHSU’s ADA Coordinator works with leaders to: 

  • Ensure OHSU complies with ADA federal and state regulations and policies. 
  • Remove barriers for patients, students and employees with disabilities. 
  • Evaluate and improve access in physical, digital and service environments. 

Physical Accessibility Committee

The Physical Accessibility Committee checks for physical barriers at OHSU locations. Committee members advise leaders and work to ensure buildings and other physical spaces comply with the ADA. Members include ADA experts, OHSU members with lived experience of disability and staff from facilities, design and construction, campus planning and real-estate, and campus access and commute services teams.

Digital Accessibility Committee 

The Digital Accessibility Committee addresses digital barriers for people with disabilities at OHSU. Committee members review technologies, including websites, mobile apps, social media, and other digital solutions, and recommend ways to improve access. Members include ADA experts, OHSU members with digital accessibility experience and OHSU staff who manage technology solutions at OHSU. Learn more: 

Self-evaluation and transition plan 

The ADA requires that public organizations like OHSU evaluate their programs and create a transition plan to remove barriers for people with disabilities. In 2024, we will begin to re-evaluate our plan and recommend updates, so we continue to provide the best possible access for everybody.
