Federal Regulations that protect equal access for persons with disabilities in colleges and universities include:
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1991
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990
"ADA is first and foremost a matter of civil rights. Too many people still do not fully understand how vital the Americans with Disabilities Act is to our nation. But we do, for we know that discrimination toward any group hurts every group."
Rep. Norman Y. Mineta
