About Us

Welcome to the Margaret A. Staton Office of Disability Services. The Office of Disability Services provides services for students, faculty and staff with permanent disabilities. Our mission is to create an accessible community where people are judged on their ability, not their disability. Disability Services strives to provide individuals with the tools by which they can accomplish their educational and career goals. Our number one priority is providing equal access to students with disabilities.

Georgia State University is committed to providing all of our students, faculty and staff access to academic, cultural and recreational facilities. We are strongly committed to fostering a positive attitude toward individuals with disabilities.
