Miami University Overhaul Technologies to Settle Department of Justice Lawsuit Alleging ADA Violations

The Justice Department announced that it filed a joint motion today for entry of a consent decree to resolve allegations that Miami University violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the proposed consent decree, Miami will make significant improvements to ensure that technologies across all of its campuses are accessible to individuals with disabilities and will pay $25,000.00 to compensate individuals with disabilities. The decree also requires reforms to Miami University’s technology procurement practices. These improvements will benefit all future Miami University students with disabilities.
