CHAMPAIGN, IL – As a leader in providing educational opportunities for persons with disabilities, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign continues to improve accessibility across campus.
Representatives from the Chancellor’s Committee on Access and Accommodations, Disability Resources & Educational Services, and Facilities & Services recently developed an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan—2017 Supplement. This plan focuses on identifying ADA deficiencies discovered during a self-evaluation of university sidewalks, streets, and other exterior access routes to 80 prioritized campus buildings. The supplement will be used to plan future projects and make ADA upgrades in areas where student, faculty, staff, and visitor impact is the greatest.
A public open house will be held on April 27, 2017, to seek input and recommendations related to this ongoing effort and help raise awareness of the plan. Access to community facilities, events, and programs for people with disabilities is a goal of the ADA.
