Additional Job Posting Information:
Since 2003, the Justin Dart, Jr. Center for Students with
DisABILITIES has had the privilege of serving students in need
while honoring one of our most distinguished alumni and the
“godfather” of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our Center was
the first space specifically designed for disabled students at any
major Texas university, and we are the only Center in the country
that honors Justin's legacy of advocating for diversity, inclusion,
and the ADA by bearing his name. We always want to improve. Our
utmost promise to our students is to help them achieve success at
the University of Houston by providing them with the access and
accommodations they need to go from freshman to graduate. After
soliciting feedback from students, an overwhelming sentiment
emerged: They did not like our name. Students explained they felt
the emphasis on “abilities” suggested that having a disability is a
negative quality that we needed to help them correct. We listened
to them. This year on the 31st anniversary of the enactment of the
Americans with Disabilities Act, we launched our new name: The
Justin Dart, Jr. Student Accessibility Center.
We are not stopping with the new name. We are committed to serving
our students, and so we are also going to roll out new improvements
in the coming months: new leadership, additional staff, a revamped
Center, and more training for faculty about accommodating disabled
students at UH. Other changes are also coming.
As part of the Health and Well-Being portfolio, the Dart Center is
one of six departments committed to cultivating a community of care
to promote and enrich the health and well-being of our students, to
become successful scholars and engaged global citizens. We are
looking for a staff members who are passionate about supporting our
student with disabilities and providing the strategic and
operational vision and implementation to help us reinvent
ourselves, so we are true leaders in empowering our students. Our
staff is excited. Our students are excited. And together, we know
we’ll continue to be a home for our Students here at the University
