Tulane University provides reasonable accommodations for faculty and staff with disabilities who request them under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
A reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a person with a disability to participate in the job application process, to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by staff without disabilities.
For example, a reasonable accommodation may include, but is not limited to:
The Office for Campus Accessibility helps employees who request disability-related accommodations pursuant to the ADA/504. If you want to request employment accommodations based on religion, click HERE for more information about that process and your rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
New Directions is our new EAP provider. New Directions offers programs and services to help individuals achieve better health and overcome barriers in life. Tulane employees will have access to webinars, onsite trainings, and mobile applications that can assist with work-life services, mental health & therapy and professional training.
The Reasonable Accommodation Process, following the guidelines established by Title I of the ADAAA, is a collaborative and interactive process.
If you are not sure if you qualify for accommodations, contact the Executive Director for Campus Accessibility & ADA/504 Coordinator to have a confidential conversation about your condition and the requirements of your job. The Executive Director will not share the fact that you contacted her, or your medical information, without your permission.
The process is a confidential, interactive one, with possibly several individuals involved.
If you have any questions about the ADA, reasonable accommodations, or require assistance completing the request form, please contact the Executive Director for Campus Accessibility & ADA/504 Coordinator, Kathryn Lafrentz by phone at 504-247-1751, by fax at 504-862-8435 or by email at email@example.com.
