The University's ADA Coordinator, Melvin Mallory, helps to resolve issues, provides information and conducts training, and serves as the University's primary resource for questions and concerns about services and accommodations for individuals with disabilities, including third parties, students, faculty, staff, and employees at the University and the Medical Center. Access issues may arise in a variety of contexts, including with respect to the University's online presence, built environment, extracurricular activities, events, the classroom, parking and transportation, Grounds, and more.
The University is committed to ensuring equal access to educational and employment opportunities for qualified individuals with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), as well as other applicable state and local laws and University policy. Qualified individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination, including harassment, and are entitled to reasonable accommodations and academic adjustments and auxiliary aids and services to ensure their participation in and enjoyment of all University programs, services, and activities. Employees should direct initial requests for accommodations to their supervisors and may seek assistance from University or Medical Center Human Resources and the ADA Coordinator, as appropriate.Students should direct initial requests for accommodations to the Student Disability Access Center (SDAC); some schools also have designated contacts. For additional information, see the procedures for requesting reasonable accommodations and a link to SDAC's webpage provided below.
The University has a complaint procedure for informally and formally resolving complaints of discrimination based on disability. Such complaints should be filed with the Universiy's Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights (EOCR). See procedures below.
