Physical Accessibility People at the Urban Plaza The main function of the campus built environment is to provide places for all to learn, work, and live successfully. ~ Sheryl E. Burgstahler In built environments, PSU has guidelines for all design and new construction that go beyond compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable regulations. PSU evaluates current facilities regularly. Changes are prioritized and made on an on-going basis as funding permits, and reflect the UD values stated in PSU's Universal Design Statement. Becoming a truly accessible campus for all students, employees and visitors is an ongoing effort at à£à£Ö±²¥ÐãState University. A number of stakeholders including Facilities and Property Management, Capital Projects and Construction, the Disability Resource Center, Global Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources, and the Registrarâ€™s Office coordinate efforts to meet the needs of students, employees and community members. These efforts include, but are not limited to, being knowledgeable about building codes and the Americans with Disabilities Act, identifying accessibility barriers, bringing non-compliant facilities and spaces up to code, responding to the requests of campus constituents, and being aware of accessibility best practices and emerging technologies. Facilities and Property Management (FPM) funds the maintenance and repair of campus facilities and building systems in academic buildings and spaces. This work includes repairing broken automatic door openers, sidewalks, ramps, elevators and removing trip hazards. FPM also funds projects that are required by city, state and federal codes, regulations and other laws. Contact FPM to learn more about their services. Individual departments, schools and colleges that wish to increase or enhance accessibility beyond what currently exists are encouraged to do so using funds within their control. The Capital Projects and Construction (CPC) department will provide an estimate for desired work and will manage the project if the department chooses to proceed. Contact CPC to learn more about their services. New construction and renovation projects give the university the opportunity to bring facilities and spaces up to current codes. In some cases, projects go beyond required codes and create living and learning environments that are not only accessible to all campus constituents, but also provide an equitable experience for everyone navigating to, from and within campus buildings.
