The ADA Advisory Committee's primary charge is to provide campus-wide oversight of Governors State University's compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the ADA non-employment and employment provisions.

To accomplish this charge the Committee will:

  • Review products and services that are necessary to meet compliance requirements.
  • Keep the university administration apprised of those products and services, and recommend when funding is needed to maintain them and the amount of funding necessary whether on a recurring or non-recurring basis.
  • Make recommendations to the university administration regarding the best methods of dissolving/addressing barriers that inhibit access to any university services, programs, products, or accommodations.
