This year marks the 40th anniversary of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the first federal law to recognize special rights and remedies for people with disabilities. As colleges prepare for the new academic year and the arrival of thousands of students, including many with disabilities, this is an opportune moment to take stock of how this law, along with the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act for which it paved the way, has changed higher education, and what issues we are likely to see in the future.
