Abstract

This article provides an overview of key issues and a focus on some of the most significant and important recent developments that should be given a high priority by university attorneys and higher education administrators and policymakers. It emphasizes the role that administrators responsible for facilitating or coordinating disability services on campus can play in ensuring that faculty members, staff members, and other administrators have the knowledge and tools to ensure access and also to avoid liability to the institution. Major changes in the Trump administration and Congress may signal changes that could affect disability discrimination issues on campus. These changes include changed regulatory guidance, reduced appropriations (including ripple effects from funding for veterans and vocational rehabilitation), and enforcement approaches. While repeal of the ADA is unlikely, regulatory activities might affect its impact. View Full-Text
