ACCOMMODATION OF APPLICANTS/EMPLOYEES WITH DISABILITIES  

APPLIES TO ALL APPLICANTS FOR EMPLOYMENT, FACULTY, AND STAFF  

In its hiring and personnel actions, Rice University does not discriminate against individuals who are disabled. The University provides reasonable accommodations (if not an undue burden) for applicants and employees with disabilities so they can complete the application process or perform their work.

How to request accommodations

Applicants who need an accommodation for a disability should tell the Employment Office.
Employees who are disabled and need accommodations should tell one of the following: their immediate supervisor, department chair/director or the Human Resources Department.

Additional Requirements

An individual who requests accommodation may be asked to provide a statement from a physician or other health care professional explaining the individual's functional limitations. The University at its discretion may require a medical examination or medical inquiry to confirm the individual's functional limitations by a health care professional it chooses.

Appeals

A person who is not satisfied with the accommodations provided may seek advice from the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Programs/Affirmative Action.
