(July 29, 2013) -- To further support a diverse, inclusive culture by continually improving and expanding disability awareness and access in its campuses, programs and activities, UTSA has launched a new website, "Americans with Disabilities Act Disability Resources at UTSA." The website serves as a one-stop destination for UTSA disability resources.

The website was created to help the UTSA community move toward seamless accessibility for all of its members. It comes as a result of collaboration by members of the UTSA ADA Accessibility Committee.

Browse the site to learn about the disability resources available to students, faculty, staff and visitors to UTSA. A detailed FAQ regarding the history of the ADA, parking and more is available. Additionally, anyone can report a barrier to accessibility at a UTSA campus or find a detailed list of accessibility contacts on UTSA campuses.

"This was a much-needed resource for UTSA," said Dianne Hengst, director of Student Disability Services. "This website serves as a portal to all of our university's ADA policies, resources and programs, and it is part of our commitment to serving every member of our university community equally."
