OFFICE OF DISABILITY SERVICES

FACULTY AND STAFF

This information is taken from a brochure prepared by the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD), the international professional organization that serves as a resource for colleges and universities to assist them in providing support for students with disabilities.

Students with disabilities are protected from discrimination under the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Recognizing that discrimination often occurs as a result of attitudinal barriers and misconceptions regarding the potential of persons with disabilities, these mandates presume the U.S. Constitutional right to privacy, whether articulated in the form of guidance or specific regulations as applied to the treatment of disability related information.
