Professional Policies & Faculty Responsibilities — Disability Protection & Accessibility

The University's disability protection policy (Operations Manual, II-7.1) and Accessibility Statement (II-7.2) state that the University will take affirmative steps to advance the employment of those with disabilities.

Under University policy and federal law, the University makes reasonable efforts to accommodate students, instructional staff, non-academic staff, and members of the general public who have physical, mental, or learning disabilities. The person who has the disability is responsible for requesting accommodations.

Faculty members, TAs, and staff members may approach the DEO first with requests for disability accommodations, or they may approach Faculty & Staff Disability Services (335-2660; or the College's Executive Associate Dean, 240 Schaeffer Hall, 335-2615).
