Welcome to the Office for Disability Equity!

The Office for Disability Equity (ODE) is the campus resource for disability-related information. We provide consultation, training, and academic services to advance accessibility and inclusion by taking an intersectional approach to disability.

We commit to reducing the need for separate accommodations by embracing an intersectional approach and more inclusive strategies, in addition to expanding our ability to provide training and support for campus offices on all things disability.

Verification Letters

Students' verification letters still say Disability Services or DSS. Are these letters invalid?

No. Our team is working diligently to update verification letters. However, this transition will take time. If the verification letter reads “Disability Services,” or “DSS,” no problem. The letter is still valid. However, we welcome students to get in touch with their coordinator and request a new letter.

Our new office location in Aber Hall effective December 27, 2021

Effective December 27, 2021, the Office for Disability Equity will have a new location: the first floor of Aber Hall. From December 20th through 26th, the office will be closed and will temporary suspend in-person services. 

During the time of the moving process, you will experience a delay in responses from our team. The best way to reach us will be through email at ode@umontana.edu or to our specific staff. If you leave us a voice message at (406) 243-2243, we will get back to you when we can.
