Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
Middle Tennessee State University is committed to providing all offerings in the most accessible way possible by maintaining compliance with standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended.
To help provide the best possible service to students, staff, faculty and visitors with disabilities, MTSU has a Director of ADA Compliance. The Director of ADA Compliance assists anyone with questions about access; provides consultation on policy reviews and facilities planning; serves as a clearing house for disability access related complaints; and develops disability access related initiatives. Please do not hesitate to contact the director with questions or concerns.
The Director works closely with departments like Campus Planning, Facilities Management, and Parking Services to actively work toward physical space compliance and address individual needs as they are brought to the university's attention.
As MTSU continues to increase its varied usage of technology, the accessibility of electronic information is an important focus. The Director leads initiatives in this area including the implementation of a plan created by several departments, including but not limited to the James E. Walker Library, Faculty Instruction and Technology Center, the Center for Educational Media, The Disability & Access Center, and Procurement Services. The goal of this plan is that accessibility in our electronic offerings will not only improve but also become a commonly recognized need.
