Disability Accommodations

A disability accommodation is a modification or adjustment to an environment or the way something is usually done to ensure that an individual with a disability has access and opportunity equal to that of individuals without disabilities. 

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA as revised, 2008), the University of Michigan must provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who request them, including students, visitors, and otherwise qualified job applicants and employees. Reasonable accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis through an interactive process between the University of Michigan and the individual requesting the accommodation. 

The LSA Disability Navigators specifically assist LSA employees who have work-related accommodation needs or questions about accommodations. LSA employees include:

  • Full-time and part-time employees
  • Temporary employees
  • Faculty, including Lecturers
  • Staff and Instructional Staff
  • Student Employees (Undergraduate and Graduate students)

Disability-Related Leave

Disability-related leave options available to LSA employees vary based on a number of factors. Human Resources (HR) representatives can help you understand which types of leave are available and determine which leave option is most appropriate.
