Know your obligations.
It’s not uncommon for colleges and universities to fail to comply with Section 504, Title II, and other ADA-related laws. Understand which one applies to your institution.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
Prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in programs and activities receiving federal funding.
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act
Relates to information communication technology (ICT) and may apply to higher education institutions receiving federal funding directly or indirectly via grants that explicitly require harmonization with federal ICT requirements.
Title II of the ADA
Prohibits disability discrimination by all “public entities” at the state and local level, including public universities.
Title III of the ADA
Prohibits disability discrimination by “places of public accommodation” including private education institutions.
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
Ensures students with disabilities are provided Free Appropriate Public Education that meets their individual needs.
Many states have enacted their own accessibility laws. Be sure to analyze funding sources and look out for references to Section 508 ICT requirements.
