American University supports the policies of the Americans with Disabilities Act and is completely committed to treating all applicants and employees with disabilities in accordance with the requirements of that statute. The University judges individuals by their abilities, not their disabilities, and seeks to give full and equal employment opportunities to all persons capable of performing successfully in the University's positions. American University will provide reasonable accommodations to any qualified persons with disabilities who require them, and urges employees and applicants who may be disabled and require accommodation to advise the University of their particular needs. Information concerning individuals' disabilities is considered confidential and their need for accommodation will be handled with the utmost discretion.
Employees and applicants who want to request a reasonable accommodation should contact the Office of Human Resources Employee Relations Team at extension 2607. Any employee or applicant who believes that they may have been discriminated against based on their disability should refer to the Discrimination and Sexual Harassment complaint procedures. Employees or applicants may also contact the Assistant Vice President of Human Resources to appeal reasonable accommodation decisions.
