Resources for Students, Faculty, Staff and Departments

Campus ADA Handbook

Campus ADA Handbook: For more information and guidance, the campus community is encouraged to consult the campus ADA Handbook. The ADA Handbook covers a wide variety of topics, including: qualifying for service, types of accommodations, temporary disabilities, faculty’s role in student accommodations, confidentiality & self-identification, terminology & etiquette.

Disabled Students Program

Disabled Students Program: Providing academic accommodations to students with disabilities is a shared responsibility of the campus. Students with disabilities are responsible for ensuring that the Disabled Students Program (DSP) is aware of their disabilities and for providing DSP with appropriate documentation. The Disabled Students Program is available to consult with faculty who have students with disabilities in their classes. Faculty are required to comply with the University’s obligations under the ADA to provide students with disabilities access to all academic programs. DSP is located in 2120 Student Resource Building and serves as the campus liaison regarding issues and regulations related to students with disabilities. The DSP staff works in an advisory capacity with a variety of campus departments to ensure that equal access is provided to all disabled students.

Human Resources

Human Resources: The campus is committed to assisting faculty, staff and students with work-related or non-industrial disabilities return to work as soon as medically appropriate. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to contact Human Resources’ Workplace Accommodations Program for information and assistance. Through early intervention, the goal is to return faculty to campus as soon as medically possible and obtain reasonable accommodations when medical restrictions apply. This program assists with reasonable accommodations for disability related limitations which temporarily or permanently restrict a faculty, staff, or student’s ability to perform.

Complaint Resolution

Complaint Resolution: Individuals with a concern or complaint related to a disability are encouraged to initiate informal resolution with the ADA Compliance Office, a department head, Dean, Disabled Students Program, Graduate Division (graduate students), or the Office of Equal Opportunity or Office of the Ombuds.

Electronic Accessibility

Electronic Accessibility: The systemwide UC Information Technology Accessibility Policy has been approved and is effective as of August 27, 2013. The policy promotes and supports an accessible IT environment within the University. By supporting IT accessibility, the University helps ensure that as broad a population as possible is able to access, benefit from, and contribute to its electronic programs and services. If you have any questions regarding your responsibility for designing or maintaining an accessible web page, or if you feel that you are unable to access a web page on campus because it lacks the required accessible features, please contact the ADA Compliance Officer.

Americans with Disabilities Act Homepage: The ADA Homepage provides access to the regulations as well as interpretive guides.
