ADA Accommodation and Accessibility Information
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is committed to its role in the provision of equal opportunity and access in employment and education for persons with disabilities. UTC adheres to the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. The ADA requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to employees.
The accommodation process is designed to explore reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities in a deliberative and interactive way. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis as part of a cooperative effort between the employee and appropriate University personnel. This process is designed to be consistent and transparent with the focus on finding a reasonable and agreed upon accommodation.
