Access Abroad

Determining Site Accessibility

Not All Accessibility is the Same

The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates equal access to university-sponsored programs and services to students with disabilities. However when international sites are involved, providing access by US standards poses a unique challenge. The expectation on the part of US students and institutions is that reasonable accommodations will be made. Depending on the country and culture, there may be different ways to define accessibility and different expectations in terms of accommodations that can or should be made.
