Disability Training Session Tuesday Moved to Sheraton
The training session on disability policies and procedures scheduled for Nov. 1 has been moved to a new location. The Tuesday session will be at the Sheraton Hotel, Regency C, instead of Bird Library. Due to significant interest in the event, an additional 30 minutes have been added to the program. It will now run from 4-6 p.m.
A second session will be conducted 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, in Room 114 of Bird Library, as originally scheduled.
The training sessions, titled “Disability Access: Roles, Responsibilities and Expectations,” will focus on how Syracuse University has organized to meet its institutional obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. They are open to all members of the campus community, and those faculty, staff and administrative leaders who deal directly with requests for academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids made by students with disabilities are particularly urged to attend.
The training sessions will be led by Scott Lissner, an international expert on disability access and accommodations in higher education and Americans with Disabilities Act coordinator for The Ohio State University. Lissner is on campus as part of the University’s first Disability Forum: Building a Culture of Implicit Inclusion, co-sponsored by the Office of Disability Services, the Office of the Provost and the Beyond Compliance Coordinating Committee.
