Disability Access

Job accommodations

Contact the EEO/AA Office or your campus EEO/AA Coordinator for information on the reasonable accommodation process for applicants and employees with disabilities.

You can also read the State of Hawai‘i Accommodations for Employees with Disabilities Manual, which outlines the recommended procedures and provides accommodation request forms and medical waivers.

Program access

Are you teaching a class? Sponsoring a public event? Organizing a workshop? Leading a field trip? Responsible for a sports event?

All university programs and activities should be accessible to persons with disabilities. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act states: "A public entity shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids and services where necessary to afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a service, program, or activity conducted by a public entity."

For information and guidance on program access, use the menu at the left for contact information for your campus ADA/504 Coordinator. Systems Programs and Manoa departments can contact the EEO/AA Office or the KOKUA Program (student disability services).

You can also download the State of Hawai‘i Programs and Services Manual For Persons with Disabilities. The manual covers customer service, auxiliary aids, sign language interpreters, facility access, service animals, registration forms, catering and banquet facilities, audio/visual presentations, safety and other elements of an accessible program.

Web access

All university programs have an obligation to ensure effective communication with persons with disabilities. This includes print media, audio media and electronic media such as the internet.
