Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Director of Equity and Diversity, as the University’s Americans with Disabilities Act coordinator and compliance officer, has responsibility for issues related to Section 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provide that no otherwise qualified disabled person (student, employee, or applicant) shall by reason of the disability be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. An otherwise qualified individual with respect to post-secondary education is one who meets the essential academic requirements, and with respect to employment is one who with reasonable accommodation can perform essential functions of the job in question. Monmouth University has complied with these principles and intends to continue its compliance.

Anyone having a complaint or observation about a possible discriminatory act or practice should contact the Office of Equity and Diversity at 732-571-7577.
