Non-Discrimination Policy

In September 1973, Congress passed Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 504 states: “No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States shall, solely on the basis of his/her handicap, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADAA) gives individuals with disabilities civil rights protection that is similar to that provided to all individuals on the basis of race, sex, national origin, and religion. The act guarantees equal opportunity in employment, public accommodations, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.

Consistent with Section 504, the ADA, and the ADAA, the policy of N.C. A&T is making affirmative efforts to accommodate qualified individuals with disabilities. Such efforts include the elimination of physical barriers and the provision of individualized accommodations. Our goal at the University is to promote institutional programs and environments that are accessible to all individuals with disabilities.


Our Commitment

We believe that the Office of Accessibility Resources is an aspect of diversity that is integral to N.C. A&T campus community. We are committed to creating and maintaining usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments as a shared responsibility of the campus community.

Indicators of our achievement are when students with disabilities can access their learning environments as seamlessly as non-disabled students. The Office of Accessibility Resources strives to work proactively with the campus on accessibility issues by serving on committees and by doing presentations to departments across the campus.
