Mission Statement

Student Disability Services provides appropriate accommodations to students with disabilities to promote equal access to the college’s programs and services. We advocate for and create an accessible college environment for students with disabilities, we support faculty in the classroom, and we provide assistive technology that empowers students to self-advocate and develop the skills necessary to succeed academically.

Once students have self-identified, applied for services, and provided documentation of their disability, our staff works to determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), both the student and the College must carry out these responsibilities in a timely manner. Student Disability Services also acts as a liaison between the student and faculty and staff.

Student Disability Services (SDS) is a New York State Agency-Based Voter Registration Site, where students with disabilities are offered information, voter registration application forms and the opportunity to register to vote.  We will be glad to help you fill out the form or provide assistance registering through CUNYFirst. There is no obligation to register to vote and the student's decision will have no effect on services offered by SDS.Voter registration information and application forms are also available at the website for the State Board of Elections of the State of New York at http://www.elections.ny.gov.

A Grievance relating to either reasonable accommodations or a Baruch program, service, or activity that is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be filed with the Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Equity Initiatives, Baruch College, One Bernard Baruch Way, Box C204, NY, New York 10010.

We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action College with the City University of New York (CUNY) that encourages campus diversity.
