Tom L. Thompson

Compliance & Inclusion for Higher Education, Disability Resources and Campus Accessibility

Colleges and universities have an obligation to ensure they provide an inclusive and equitable environment for students and employees with disabilities. In order for campuses to be equipped and responsive to student and employee requests for access, they must invest and advance the delivery of systems, procedures or guidelines, and resources. One way to view and understand the campus’s role, the role of the Disabled Students Program and Services (DSPS) and the role of an Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Coordinator in advancing accessibility, compliance and inclusion is to examine the Mission Statementtaken from the Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS).

  • A simple mission for the broad scope of work in Disability Resources and Services.
  • It takes a "campus" to create access and inclusion.
  • DRS operational and strategic elements
  • Organizational structures in DRS and key partnerships
  • A tripod: Compliance, Best Practices and Assessment/Evaluation/Renewal
