Americans with Disabilities Act (1990)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a national mandate that protects the rights of individuals with disabilities or impairments. The law establishes that mental or physical disabilities do not limit a person’s rights to participate in any professional or academic area or in everyday society.
Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act (1973)
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 gives people with disabilities the same rights and opportunities as individuals without disabilities. This law establishes that all private and public entities who receive federal funds cannot discriminate against individuals with disabilities in any way that limits or excludes their participation in a program or activity.
ADA Amendments Act (2008)
Effective January 2009, these amendments consist of significant changes to the definition of disability in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These amendments are included in the provisions established in the Albizu University Student Guide to Reasonable Accommodation.
This federal law states that a physical or mental impairment does not limit a person's right to participate in professional, academic, and personal areas in society. At Albizu University, we fully support students’ right to request reasonable accommodations.
Any student interested in requesting reasonable accommodations is welcome to contact the Student Success Coordinator, Ms. Maria Leduc, by email at email@example.com or by phone at 305-593-1223, ext. 3113. Ms. Martinez’s office is located in the Office of Student Affairs on the main floor of the Miami Campus building.
