Americans With Disabilities Act 2015

Accessibility Resources and other groups at UB and the WNY community are planning a calendar full of educational and celebratory events throughout 2015 to mark the 25th anniversary of the ADA.

More information regarding these events will be provided on/by February 1.

Note Takers Needed for Students with Disabilities

If your professor makes an announcement that a note taker is needed in one of your courses and you would like to volunteer, please stop by or contact the office to learn more. Student note takers who are eligible receive a stipend of $25 per credit hour at the end of the semester, usually $75. Note takers are required to make copies of their notes to share with a student with a disability. Accessibility Resources coordinates the photocopying and/or scanning of the notes at no cost to the note taker.
