Minnesota State Statutes
Assuring the full inclusion and participation of individuals with disabilities in higher education is often argued on ethical grounds — some simply consider it to be the "right thing to do." Others are more responsive to legal mandates. Post-secondary institutions and educators should be aware of key legislation that addresses disability-related issues in higher education.
Minnesota state statutes require that post-cecondary institutions accept otherwise qualified students with disabilities into their academic programs. The identification and implementation of reasonable accommodations that promote access to academic opportunities for students with disabilities are to be engaged in by members of the university community. Experienced staff are available on campus to assist instructors in understanding the effects of disabilities on the learning process and relevant state statutes.
