Accessibility at Wichita State University
WSU Accessibility Policies
The WSU policy handbook has been updated to include policies that address accessibility. You can find those policies here (live links will be included when the policy changes are live):
Accessibility vs. Accomodation
We need to make a clear distinction between accessibility and accommodation.
Accessibility is Proactive. It is how we respond to the needs of populations, not individuals. It is rooted in our efforts to comply with Section 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its later amendments.
Accommodation is Reactive. It is how we respond to the needs of individuals, not populations. It is rooted in our efforts to comple with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its later amendments.
