Accessibility and Accommodations
The Office for Access & Equity is committed to fostering an inclusive working and learning environment that is accessible to all. We view accessibility as far more than compliance—it is an aspect of the rich diversity of our university. A culture of equity and inclusion is our goal, and compliance is our guide to reach that goal. To that end, we strive to make our information and communications technologies, classroom materials, and physical spaces as accessible as possible.
Below, you can find information about reasonable workplace accommodations for university employees. This section of the site includes information about training opportunities, electronic accessibility, and accessibility maps for university facilities.
Employees and applicants for employment may be eligible for reasonable accommodations that will allow them to perform the essential functions of their position or participate in the hiring process for an open position.
A reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that does not cause an undue hardship on the department or unit and which permits a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the job application process, to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by employees without disabilities.
Reasonable accommodations are also available to qualifying employees due to parenting/pregnancy and religious reasons. In addition to the ADA, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and multiple state laws provide reasonable accommodations to employees with sincerely held religious beliefs and pregnant/parenting employees.
