In order to receive the most appropriate assistance, faculty and staff (or candidates) with disabilities should provide the Office of Human Resources with the most current and specific information that establishes the presence of a disability. This information should be provided as soon as possible to give the Human Resource office time to research available accommodations.  All communications regarding accommodations made with the College shall remain confidential, except as necessary to arrange or approve such accommodations.  The information shall not be used as criteria in making employment decisions.   To begin the process, complete the ADA Reasonable Accommodation​​ form​ and return it to the Office of Human Resources, Harkins Hall Room 302.
