ADA/Disability Management Center

The University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School through the Office of Management is firmly committed to providing full access to individuals with disabilities. In so doing, UMass Chan intends to fully comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 as amended 2008, Diversity and Equal Opportunity Office guidelines, and Human Resources policies. Policies and procedures are in place to ensure that disabled applicants, students, staff, faculty, visitors, volunteers, and vendors do not experience discrimination in any way. 

According to the The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act ("ADA" – 42 USCA 1211 and following), an "individual with a disability" is defined as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not name all "impairments" that are covered under the Act. UMass Chan intends to fully comply with the ADA as well as all other applicable federal and state laws, codes and regulations, including but not limited to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 151C.
