The Development of a Plan for Institutional Compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
McKay, Elizabeth R.
The dissertation presents a plan for the compliance of William Rainey Harper College with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Chapter 1 discusses the background and significance of the plan and identifies major issues (such as the institution's commitment to nondiscrimination of the handicapped), defines terms, and cites limitations and assumptions. Chapter 2 reviews the related literature on institutional accessibility. In Chapter 3 the procedures for implementation are outlined including notification of program accessibility, the transition plan, self evaluation methodology, a summary of implementation, and a community evaluation. Findings and recommendations are detailed in Chapter 4. Among findings listed are physical changes needed in areas such as stairwells and door openings. Over two-thirds of the document consists of a bibliography and appendixes including a copy of the transition plan, and information on the self evaluation and community evaluation procedures. (PHR)
