Accommodations and Access for Students
Disability Services works with students to understand each person’s individual needs and arrange the appropriate accommodations, which can include additional time to complete assignments, exam proctoring, and more.
Accommodations and Access for Faculty and Staff
The Accessible Workplace unit within the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (EOA) of Human Resources is responsible for administering reasonable workplace accommodations for faculty and staff through an interactive process. Visit the Accessible Workplace website to find out more about accommodations and to register.
Human Resources also offers the following for faculty and staff:
- Employee inclusivity trainings
- Short-term counseling and consultation through the Employee Counseling and Consultation Office (ECCO)
