Steps Toward Campus Accessibility.
Association of Physical Plant Administrators of Universities and Colleges, Washington, DC.
Photo-essays focus on the progress colleges and universities have made in achieving program accessibility for handicapped persons in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Both common problems and innovative solutions to unique problems are included. "People We Never See" introduces the challenge higher education faces to overcome both attitudinal and architectural barriers. "Becoming Aware" depicts campus activities designed to sensitize administrators and students to problems handicapped persons face. "Matching Places to People" specifically deals with architectural modifications that involve adapting facilities to the persons who use them instead of requiring handicapped persons to overcome barriers. "Opening Doors to Special Spaces" shows how campuses have made science laboratories and sports facilities accessible to handicapped persons. "Protecting Human Lives" addresses the problems of assuring the safety of all persons on campuses and establishing emergency procedures appropriate for both able-bodied and handicapped persons. Other articles include "Taking Time to Listen,""Providing the Comforts of Home,""Putting the Campus on the Map,""New Wheels to Freedom,""Bridging Communications Gaps," and "The Ultimate Benefit."
