Transcript Accommodating the Disabled Although UH was already more than 95 percent barrier-free, the Physical Plant, Office of Human Resources and the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) were implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA, which tookeffectinJuly26,1992, "gives comprehensive civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, pubic accommodations, transportation, telecommunications and state and local government services." "Actually, these were mandated services in the Rehab Act of 1973," said Karen Waldman, coordina tor for CSD, about the impact of ADA at UH. Don Green, assistant director of Architecture, Engineering and Construction Services (part of the Physical Plant), was involved in a preliminary survey of UH's campus barriers. The survey concentrated on immediate step to implement ADA: parking spaces and accessibility to building, entrances and exits, signs, elevators and restrooms. "This is not a complete survey-corridors, aisles, work spaces and individual spaces, access to rooms and hardware-also need to be considered," Green said. Green discussed door operators, which can cost from under $2,000 for a push-button one to as much as $10,000 for a fully automatic one, as an example of some costs that may be incurred. "One needs to be innovative and thoughtful in approaching ADA compliance...it is not throwing money at the problem," Green stressed. Laura Rothstein, Law Center associate dean, teaches a course on disabilities and the law and was proud of UH's record as one of the top universities in the nation for facilitating people with disabilities. "Not that there are not things that need to be im proved," Rothstein added. Dina Abramson, a senior elementary education major and Handicapped Students' Advisory Board (HSAB) chair, said that in terms of accessibility, "there's a world of difference between UH and the other institutions." "I hope that we continue to be one of the leading institutions for students, faculty and staff with disabilities," Dr. Dorothy Caram, chair of the ADA Implementation Committee, said. -Veronica Guevara Elizabeth Boudreaux, Computer Science, Fr.
