Campus Community Invited to Meet Finalists for Position Overseeing Compliance With Disability, Accessibility Laws

By Maryland Today Staff

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion invites the campus community to meet the three finalists for the position of ADA/504 coordinator.

As the university works to be a more inclusive campus, this position will be important in ensuring the coordination and development of ongoing efforts for ADA compliance management.

Now a standalone role at the university, the ADA/504 coordinator is responsible for coordinating and monitoring the university’s compliance efforts with the Americans with Disabilities Act; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; and other federal, state and local laws pertaining to persons with disabilities and accessibility. This position will serve as the primary university point of contact for overseeing compliance, assessing and responding to accessibility concerns, and providing education and outreach to the campus and ensuring continual efforts for access and inclusivity in employment, instruction, virtual and physical environments and programs. The ADA/504 coordinator will also collaborate with campus units and stakeholders to ensure compliance efforts and will report directly to the vice president for diversity and inclusion.

Finalists will give a 30-minute presentation, followed by 20 minutes for answering questions. CART services will be provided. All meetings will be held via Zoom, and ODI will send an evaluation to all attendees after the event.

Please register in advance individually for each session below:

  • Monday, May 24, 1-2 p.m. RSVP
  • Thursday, May 27, 1-2 p.m. RSVP
  • Friday, May 28, 1-2 p.m. RSVP

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion looks forward to introducing the campus community to each finalist and to hearing Terps’ thoughts as it seeks to add a new member to its team.
