New York University is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and participation for students with disabilities. It is the University’s policy that no qualified student with a disability be excluded from participating in any University program or activity, denied the benefits of any University program or activity, or otherwise subjected to discrimination with regard to any University program or activity.
The Henry and Lucy Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) determines qualified disability status and assists students in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services. CSD operates according to an Independent Living Philosophy and strives in its policies and practices to empower each student to become as independent as possible. Our services are designed to encourage independence, backed by a strong system of supports.
Any student who needs a reasonable accommodation based on a qualified disability is required to register with the CSD for assistance.
The mission of the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) is to facilitate equal access to programs and services for students with disabilities throughout the schools and divisions of New York University (NYU) and to foster independent decision making skills necessary for personal and academic success.
CSD endeavors to fulfill its mission by:
- Developing programs and activities that foster the personal and academic growth and independence of students with disabilities.
- Educating the NYU community about the legal standards for accommodating students with disabilities and ensuring awareness of CSD programs and services.
- Providing efficient and responsive service delivery systems for students, faculty and administrative staff.
