Our Commitment

University of Michigan-Flint is committed to equal employment in all aspects of employment for individuals with a disability. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and State laws, and consistent with the University’s Policy on Harassment and Discrimination, it is the policy of the University to provide reasonable accommodations in employment to individuals with disabilities unless the reasonable accommodation would impose an undue hardship of the operation of the University’s business or would change an essential function of the position. Our Office for Institutional Equity team is committed to engaging in the interactive process during the accommodation request process. Please email us at FlintInstitutionalEquity@umich.edu the Office for Institutional Equity for information and assistance or call (810) 237-6517.

What is Reasonable Accommodation?

For University Employees (including student employees), a reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, employment practice, or the work environment that makes it possible for a qualified individual with a disability to enjoy an equal employment opportunity. The University will provide a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.

University employees can contact Suzi Bye, Benefits Coordinator, Human Resources for more information:

For University Students, a reasonable accommodation is a reasonable modification in policies, practices or procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability unless the modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of a University service, program or activity. Examples of reasonable accommodations may include, but are not limited to:

  • Note taking services 
  • Text conversion to alternative accessible formats
  • Audio and video tapes
  • Qualified interpreter services
  • Adjusting time limits on tests
  • Making facilities and/or programs readily accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities
