State University and have a disability, this site will provide you

a student with a disability, or if you supervise employees with
disabilities, you have an obligation under the law to provide appropriate

your obligations and responsibilities under the law.
Individuals with disabilities have traditionally struggled with
accessing employment, education, and transportation. On July 26
1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into
law. This act provides wide-ranging legislation to which society
must attend. This website provides the university community
with information about ADA, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and other
pertinent legislation that the community has an obligation to address.
An individual is referred to as "disabled" if he or she
meets at least any one of the following criteria:
- He or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially
limits one or more of his/her major life activities;
- He or she has a record of such an impairment; or,
- He or she is regarded as having such impairment.
