ADA Committee

ADA Commitee/Contacts

The University of Nebraska at Kearney's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Committee exists as a vehicle to advise the Chancellor on ADA policies and practices. The Committee has two distinct charges. First, the Committee is charged with reviewing and supporting the development of institutional policy and identifying potential areas of concern in matters related to disability issues. Second, the Committee is charged with serving as a review panel for accommodation plans upon the request of the ADA Coordinator. These charges are designed to encourage and support disability initiatives and to protect individuals and the university community collectively from the possible moral and legal repercussions of the violation of ADA/504 guidelines.

Any member of the ADA Committee may be contacted about ADA procedures and policies at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Specific committee members are responsible for initiating the accommodation procedures and are identified (*) below:
