Working Together

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

Here at YSU, the success of Disability Services is dependent on the student, professor, and University working toward common goals and creating a well-informed university community.

Faculty and students should work together to increase advocacy for students who have been diagnosed with physical, psychological, and learning disabilities; increase their level of awareness regarding how to best assist students with various disabilities; and how to provide needed classroom accommodations. Only then can we all succeed in helping all students pursue their dreams of higher education.
