Americans with Disabilities Act Accommodations
For Faculty and Staff
The university’s Affirmative Action and non-discrimination program encourages the employment and advancement in employment of qualified persons with a disability. Employees may disclose the nature of the disability to the Office for Equity to request reasonable accommodations. The request for accommodations will be reviewed so that the university may provide reasonable accommodations to assist the employee in performing the essential functions of the position.
Submission of disability information is strictly voluntary. In addition, if there is a disability which affects the employee's performance or might create a hazard to the employee or others, then additional information will be helpful such as:
- The skills and procedures the employee uses or intends to use to perform the job, and
- The accommodations that the university may make which would help the employee perform the job properly and safely.
The Office for Equity assists faculty and staff members in requesting reasonable accommodations.
