Since Purdue first opened for classes in September 1874, the University has been dedicated to "making higher education available to the people." Purdue daily continues its efforts to modify both attitudinal and structural barriers to allow students with disabilities full advantage of their right to an education.
The campus accessibility guides found in this collection detail special facilities such as wheelchair-accessible restrooms, ramps, and elevators, to help those with physical disabilities find their way around campus. The guide also points to the many services available to those with disabilities.
