ADA Accessibility Committee

Purpose

The ADA Accessibility Committee was established by the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs. The primary mission of this committee is to prevent physical facility accessibility issues or address them as they arise or are identified. This includes, but is not limited to, barrier removal in existing facilities, and development of policies to ensure compliance with codes and standards in facilities for future design.

The philosophy of this committee is to positively influence the University by setting the standard on meeting the needs of people with disabilities, not just meeting the minimum accessibility standards required by law. The University is committed to making all reasonable efforts to ensure all FAU campuses are truly accessible to all people.


Protocol

The ADA Accessibility Committee is chaired by the ADA Coordinator and as a general rule meets monthly. In addition to addressing accessibility issues which require an immediate response, the Committee also

  • Makes policy recommendations which corresponds with the University's goal of meeting the needs of people with disabilities,
  • Identifies maintenance issues that affect campus accessibility, and
  • Updates the University's transition plan

We encourage a diverse Committee to accurately represent the University and the disabled Community, and we welcome your input.
