To thrive as an institution of higher education, a school must be cognizant of and respectful towards the special needs of its students. Furthermore, federally funded schools in the United States are required to comply with accessibility guidelines per the Americans with Disabilities Act or face paying fines up to $75,000 for the first violation. Being able to quickly, efficiently respond to students’ requests for accommodations is not only a critical component of ensuring that all students are given a fair chance at success – it is also an integral part of protecting an institution from severe financial and reputational consequences.

Accessibility services staff will reap the benefits of having all processes and information for accommodation requests consolidated into one place, resulting in drastically increased organization and productivity.
