To request a reasonable accommodation, please submit the Reasonable Accommodation Request form to the Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity. Refer to the Employee Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedure for more information.
The Office also investigates complaints of discrimination. For more information on the process, refer to the Procedure for Responding to Internal Complaints of Discrimination. Employees may also contact the university's Compliance and Policy Officer, who is the university's ADA/Rehabilitation Act Coordinator.
