Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v47 n1 p63-77 2010
The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), which became effective at the beginning of 2009, is poised to have potentially wide-reaching implications for higher education. The article reviews the recent amendments to the original Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (1990), summarizes the relevant Supreme Court cases that have been overturned, and examines practical implications of the recent ADA changes for university personnel, particularly student affairs practitioners.
