This presentation will inform the higher education as to the proper ways to navigate ADA and 504 on today’s college campuses. Even with all of the methods of communication, as well as the data itself, too many schools are ignorant of not only the rights of students, but of the rights of the institution. By becoming better familiar with the federal laws related to the rights of the disabled. College campuses can create polices that provide a positive, welcoming and encouraging area for your students with different needs. By doing so, educators can create environments where differences are not viewed as negative impediments, but instead as arenas where individual strengths are recognized.

This presentation will delve into the rules and updates regarding ADA, 504, and how various colleges and universities are being both proactive and reactive. As a group we will understand why ADA and 504 are arguably the most important aspects of federal law related to education. We will also delve into how Justice Department Agreements and ASDA Audits can positively and negatively affect your campus. When we are finished understanding the law, we will understand why preserving, and in some cases achieving, diversity will go a long way in students with documented disabilities become acclimated to your campus and succeed even after graduation.
