Campus Access Report Card - Accommodating Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Environments

The Campus Report Card measures universal design and accessibility of a campus. "The idea of 'grading' a campus is that 1) educators and educational systems understand the idea of grades and report cards, and 2) there is some rationale for examining various areas of an organization's skill and knowledge to see how a campus rates in each of the areas. Also, like a report card, grades can be observed over time to witness progress or identify problem areas requiring additional attention." One can just as easily use the areas suggested and type up an assessment form without grades to just point out areas that are in most need of improvement or reward areas that are doing the best.

"July 26 marks the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.... the ADA's provisions include the right to seek, obtain, pursue and maintain employment without being hampered by physical or attitudinal barriers. I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
