The Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity (IDE) works in partnership with offices and individuals across the institution to provide resources that promote access, respect, inclusiveness, and community in all the working and learning environments at Dartmouth. Dartmouth does not discriminate on the basis of disability —a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity; in employment, or admission or access to its programs or activities. Further detail regarding federal definitions of disability may be found in the resource list below under the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended.

The campus ADA Compliance Officer and the Vice President for Institutional Diversity & Equity provide institutional oversight and coordination of the College's compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act 1990, as amended, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and additional applicable federal, state and local regulations regarding access to the institution's programs and services for persons with disabilities.

Our work includes:

  • consulting and collaborating with departments and schools across the institution on access and disability compliance for students, employees and guests, including developing policies and practice, reviewing the accessibility of programs and services, and evaluating facilities access.
  • providing educational and training opportunities to enhance awareness of disability issues and institutional commitments and obligations.
  • receiving and responding to requests for ADA accommodations from applicants for employment and employees, to barrier removal and non-discrimination complaints on the basis of disability and to requests for information about campus access.

Employees and guests needing assistance should contact the ADA Compliance Officer for the campus, at 603-646-3197, or email for more information.  Undergraduates seeking assistance or prospective students with accessibility questions should contact the Director of Student Accessibility Services at 603-646-9900, or email
