 Full Description: 
Here is a description of the work of this Center copied from its website:

"The Great Lakes ADA Center's mission is to increase awareness and knowledge with the ultimate goal of achieving voluntary compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This is accomplished within targeted audiences through provision of customized training, expert assistance, and dissemination of information developed by various sources, including the federal agencies responsible for enforcement of the ADA. We are not an enforcement or regulatory agency, but a helpful resource supporting the ADA's mission to "make it possible for everyone with a disability to live a life of freedom and equality."

The Center provides information, materials, technical assistance and training on the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Topics addressed includes the non-discrimination requirements in employment, the obligations of state and local governments and business to ensure that programs, services and activities are readily accessible to and useable by people with disabilities.

The Great Lakes ADA Center's Accessible Technology Initiative, encourages incorporation of accessible information technology in K-12 and post secondary school settings. Accessible Information Technology incorporates the principles of universal design so that people with a wide range of abilities and disabilities can access information disseminated electronically."

The Great Lakes ADA Center is designated as the ADA information center for businesses and individuals from Region 5 and is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Great Lakes ADA Center is a program of the Department of Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The six states that comprise Region 5 are: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
