Kenneth Osfield, ADA Director

As a service to the University community, the Committee on Persons with Disabilities is coordinating departmental ADA information sessions throughout the academic year. The information sessions have been coordinated through the ADA Office and the Dean of Students Office.

The purpose of the information sessions is to answer questions faculty and staff have about educating students with disabilities, including appropriate methods of providing accommodations.

Two types of information sessions are available. You and your department may elect to attend an inter-departmental information session at the Reitz Union, or have disability service providers coordinate a session exclusively for your staff.

The inter-departmental information sessions will be especially helpful to departments with a small number of staff members. All Sessions will be held in the ADA/Campus Planning Conference Room in the Stadium, Room 236 on the following dates:

Tuesday, September 12, 2000 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Monday, September 18, 2000 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Thursday, October 12, 2000 2:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday, October 25, 2000 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Friday, November 3, 2000 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Thursday, November 9, 2000 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday, December 6, 2000 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Tuesday, December 19, 2000 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

* Reservations are required and must be received a minimum of one week prior to the session.

* Each session will be limited to 20 participants.

Information sessions are also available for individual departments and can be tailored to meet the needs of your staff. To arrange a date and time for an individual information session, please contact Dr. Kenneth Osfield at the ADA Office, 232 Stadium, 392-7056, 846-1046 (TDD), email:
