ADA Transition Plans

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (University) has a long standing commitment to Accessibility. This commitment to accessibility and our overall compliance effort related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) continues to be a high priority for the University. Various University departments and committees provide leadership in this area including the Office of the Chancellor, Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES), Office of Diversity, Equity and Access (ODEA), Facilities & Services (F&S), Chancellor’s Committee on Access and Accommodations (CCAA), and Various Academic Units.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (Title II) requires a public entity to make its programs, activities and services accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities except where to do so would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the program or in undue financial and administrative burdens. The law does not
require that each of the existing facilities be made accessible. However, public entities are directed to identify where physical changes to facilities are necessary to render programs accessible (where relocation of the program to accessible facilities or use of alternative methods to achieve accessibility are not possible). Where physical
alterations to facilities are required, a transition plan which identifies the physical barriers that limit access to programs, activities, or services to individuals with disabilities, is required. The plan should describe the methods to be used and timetable for removing the barriers.
