University of Louisville being investigated for possible disability discrimination
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is investigating the University of Louisville for possible disability-related discrimination.
University spokesman John Karman confirmed that the Office for Civil Rights has launched a case, which specifically concerns website and online course accessibility.
The education department’s website says the U of L investigation began March 27.
Inside Higher Ed reported in November 2018 that hundreds of colleges are being investigated for their failure to ensure individuals with disabilities can access their websites properly. The investigation into Louisville may be similar.
