Fair hiring question

A good friend of mine is applying at a major University. She had an automobile accident a number of years ago and has rods and screws in her back and cannot lift over 20 pounds per her doctor. When looking at the University positions posted (over 100) every single one from a receptionist to a cart driver has a note that they must be able to live 25 pounds or they are not qualified.

I worked there for a long time with a back issue and it never seemed to bother anyone that I could not lift that much.

Does this sound like some type of institutional discrimination against anyone with a disability? Or are they trying to keep their health costs down by not hiring anyone with a back issue?
