ADA and 504: What Colleges Need to Know about Agreements and Audits?

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

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 policies 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.

Join this session by expert speaker Kent Seaver and spent examining the rules and updates regarding ADA, 504, and how various colleges and universities are being both proactive and reactive.

Session Highlights:

Specific questions or pieces of information that will be answered and answer and disseminated are:

  • Why ADA and 504 are arguably the most important aspects of federal law related to education.

  • How Justice Department Agreements and ASDA Audits can positively and negatively affect your campus

  • 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.

Why You Should Attend:

The focus on the “why” of what we as academic institutions do. Understanding the “why” allows for strong, specific formulas in terms of academic success. The “why” allows us to understand the issue, the need for change, and the reason for implementation. The how can come later…

The last 10 minutes will be reserved for Questions and Answers. By creating a two-way dialogue in the hour I have allotted, I intend to act as a communicator as well as a sounding board for those interests in college access and 504.
