Messenger - Vol. 3, No. 1, Page 17 Fall 1993 DiScala new program coordinator Jeanette DiScala has assumed the newly created position of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) program coordinator at the University. "The University has many programs and services in place for persons with disabilities," DiScala said, "and my role is to act as a liaison and coordinator of these efforts for students, employees and members of the general public with disabilities who are on campus, and to introduce new programs where appropriate." The new position is in the Office of Affirmative Action and Multicultural Programs. DiScala says she views her job as multifaceted since she serves as an advocate for those with disabilities and as an educator and trainer about disabilities and ADA compliance for the campus community. In addition, she is a coordinator, working with staff members in student life, employee relations and facilities planning and construction who already have been involved in improving the campus environment for persons with disabilities. Much work already has been done to make the campus and University programs accessible for persons with disabilities, DiScala said. Disabilities cover a large range, she said, from mobility, vision and hearing impairments to learning disabilities and emotional and mental impairments. A graduate of the State University of New York at Binghamton and Cornell University Law School, DiScala holds a doctorate from the University of Washington in Seattle.
