About ADA Advisory Committee
The ADA Advisory Committee provides guidance related to the development and maintenance of a barrier-free environment at UTEP that facilitates equal opportunities and access for individuals with disabilities. The committee provides guidance through review of policies and procedures relative to the university’s compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its Amendments. Members may also be called upon to provide input and expertise to other university committees and teams. The committee will meet once a month or more often if needed.

The number of members may vary but will always include representation from the faculty, staff, student body, physical plant, parking and transportation services, environmental health and safety and residence life.
