ADA - Section 504 Coordination and Resources

 The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 prevents discrimination against qualified individuals based on disability. Title II ADA requires newly designed and constructed or altered state and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 applies to employers and organizations that receive financial assistance from any federal department or agency. Section 504 forbids organizations and employers from excluding or denying individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to receive program benefits and services.

UNF uses a three-pronged approach to handle ADA-504 administration: Student Accessibility Services, ADA Compliance Office, and the Office of Equal Opportunity and Inclusion:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity, and Inclusion Complaint and Investigation Procedure

 
As part of UNF's collaborative ADA-504 coordination, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Inclusion (EOI) investigates allegations of discrimination by students, faculty and staff and others who interact in the University community. The University has established guidelines and procedures to address discrimination, discriminatory harassment, retaliation, and sexual misconduct in violation of the University's Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity, and Diversity Regulation and its Sexual Misconduct Regulation. It is charged with ensuring compliance with federal, state and local law and enabling the University to address circumstances that may conflict with its commitment to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, staff, visitors, vendors, and applicants, or other individuals who interact in our University community. All individuals may use the Intake Form to file a complaint or to review matters of concern.
Any person desiring to file a complaint of discrimination based on disability, including ADA accessibility issues, or any other basis protected by law, ordinance, or university regulation or policy, may contact the Director, Office of Equal Opportunity and Inclusion as designated by the University president. The Office of Equal Opportunity and Inclusion, University of North Florida, is located at J. J. Daniel Hall, Suite 1201, 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, Florida 32224-7699, or call (904) 620-2507 Voice & TDD and (904) 1004 Fax or via 711 Florida Relay for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing or those with speech impairments and/or limitations.
