              The ADA Coordinator

The University of Southern Indiana is committed to the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities and to the continual improvement of the accessibility of our campus, programs, and activities. To help guide these efforts, the ADA Coordinator position was created to provide an in-house resource with expertise with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. As the University's focal point for disability-related issues, the ADA Coordinator collaborates with University offices, governmental agencies, advocacy groups, and other local and regional disability service organizations in the ongoing endeavor to maximize the University’s compliance with State and Federal mandates regarding our students, faculty, staff, and student workers with disabilities.

The ADA Coordinator provides:

  • consultation to the University on policy reviews and facilities planning

  • training and education on disability-related topics both within the University and in the community

  • a clearing house for disability-related complaints and information requests

Effective immediately, they have now permanently relocated to SC 2206; the old Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education administrative offices.
