Accommodating Persons With Disabilities

It has been a long-standing policy of the College to employ and promote qualified personnel without discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment because of a physical or mental disability or record thereof.

The College's policy is to initiate affirmative action to employ, advance in employment, and to otherwise treat qualified persons with disabilities including disabled veterans without discrimination in the employment process.

From time to time, the College studies the existing physical barriers and safety hazards for individuals with disabilities.  The College makes reasonable accommodations for the physical and mental limitations of employees and applicants for employment.  Accommodations must be consistent with job qualifications and within the parameters of the effective operation of the College.

The work environment will be made accessible to persons with disabilities through such efforts as: modifying the job site, offering support services, providing special equipment, restructuring of equipment, and restructuring of the job whenever it is reasonable for the College to do so.
