Syracuse University and the School of Education are dedicated in their mission to fully include persons with disabilities and special needs. In compliance with Section 508 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Syracuse University and the School of Education are committed to ensure that “no otherwise qualified individual with a disability…shall, solely by reason of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity.”
The redesigned main School of Education website meets and exceeds Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The site is designed to provide a rich experience for users of both traditional browsers as well as assistive browsing technologies and mobile devices. Pages in the new site have been tested against a variety of web accessibility guidelines including:
If you have web accessibility questions, comments, or suggestions concerning the website, please contact our Director of Marketing and Communications Jennifer Russo.
Information regarding accessible buildings and routes on campus are available on the campus maps website. Please note that while the routes depicted are usable by most people, they may not be in full compliance with all federal accessibility standards. The University is continuing to make improvements to these routes and is working in conjunction with the City of Syracuse to identify City-controlled areas in need of improvement.
Information on the map is current as of publication (August 2004). Since that time, the campus has undergone some changes. The Office of Disability Services can provide more detailed or updated information about particular entrances, buildings, or paths and is available to assist with other requests related to University access for persons with disabilities. Please contact the Office of Disability Services at (315) 443-4498 for more information.
