Envisioning an academic culture defined by equitable access to education
Working collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create an inclusive educational environment for students.
The AccessAbility Center/Student Disability Services (AAC/SDS) ensures full participation and meaningful access to all of City College’s and CUNY School of Medicine’s services, programs, and activities that correspond with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, The Amendments Act of 2008, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Fair Housing Act of 1968, and other applicable Federal, State, and local non-discrimination laws. AAC/SDS accomplishes this goal through the coordination and implementation of academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and support services for students with disabilities. The Center actively works toward full inclusion in policies, procedures, and practices in the context of accessibility while maintaining essential academic and technical standards. AAC/SDS engages in increasing disability awareness among members of the City College community through workshops, trainings, and the dissemination of literature.
Diana Cuozzo is the 504/ADA coordinator. Ms. Cuozzo is charged with ensuring that college programs, policies and procedures comply with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 501 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other Federal and State laws and regulations pertaining to persons with disabilities.
