Mr. Lewis,

The Michigan Freedom of Information Act provides that the University supply existing public records in response to requests, subject to applicable exemptions. You have not asked for records,  rather you have asked questions which the University is not obligated to answer. However, we are supplying information or links to where records can be found, if known. See text in blue below each question.

A Notice of Right to Seek Review is attached above.

Sincerely,

Kathy A. Kelly, for

Manuel R. Rupe

Freedom of Information Officer

As part of the ongoing discussion inside of Dyslexic in America, we have dedicated a special section to colleges and university with Strong support Services for people with dyslexia and other disabilities. I have sent out a request for information from each of the institutions we have begun two explore; I will be posting the responses from each individual institution as they come in.
