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.

For more information or for a copy of the consent decree, please visit our ADA website at www.ada.gov.

Those interested in finding out more about the ADA may also call the Justice Department's toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 or 1-800-514-0383 (TDD).
