The ADA/504 coordinator's office guides the university's efforts to move beyond compliance and toward seamless access. As the university's focal point for disability-related initiatives, the ADA/504 coordinator's office collaborates with university offices, government agencies and advocacy groups to inform decision-making and ensure university compliance with state and federal mandates. The office addresses accessibility issues and reports of disability-based discrimination on campus.
Individuals who believe they have been denied reasonable accommodations, discriminated against on the basis of disability, or retaliated against in violation of this Policy, may file a complaint under the UMD Non-Discrimination Policy with the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct (OCRSM) within 90 days here.
This policy applies to all members of the University community: guests, applicants, students, faculty, staff and vendors.
A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of a person’s major life activities.
“Reasonable accommodations” are adjustments to the learning or working environment that provide individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate.
