Testing Campus Accessibility Doors

Kenneth Cyprian and Erick Gurrola

In a sit-down interview with Cal State Los Angeles student, Fatima Albarado, she discussed some challenges she faces on the university’s campus as a student with disabilities. One of the issues was the reoccurring problem of the accessibility door buttons not operating properly. In her case, as well as many others, opening doors manually can be a very difficult task. The University Times conducted a campus wide investigation to determine how many of these accessibility door buttons were not working.
