If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student who needs an ADA accommodation, please see the information below. As we are operating under a COVID-19 environment, the university recognizes the need for increased flexibility for faculty, staff, and students. Some individuals with disabilities who did not previously seek ADA accommodations, may need support or assistance during this time. The university also recognizes that those with current accommodations may have changing needs. We are here to help.
