At the University of Colorado Boulder, employees with disabilities are entitled to access, support, and when appropriate, reasonable accommodations. The ADA Coordinator supports the ongoing development of an accessible university that embraces and celebrates diversity. The ADA Coordinator provides disability-related information, services, and resources for faculty and staff. The ADA Coordinator is responsible for providing reasonable accommodations for faculty and staff, educating the campus community, and promoting equal access and opportunity for those with disabilities. Additionally, the ADA Coordinator, in conjunction with the Chancellor's Committee on Campus Accessibility, addresses the structural accessibility needs of students, faculty and staff.
A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment to a job or the work environment that will enable a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the application process or to perform essential job functions.
In order to determine whether you are eligible for an accommodation under the ADA, the ADA Coordinator will ask for documentation of your medical condition. Having a medical condition alone is not enough to make you eligible for an accommodation. Under the ADA, an individual with a disability is a person with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as breathing, eating, sleeping, walking, talking, manual tasks, etc.
The forms found below may be used to initiate a request for reasonable accommodation:

The ADA requires that the ADA Coordinator keep medical information confidential. However, the law allows the ADA Coordinator to share information regarding your medical condition with individuals who are considered to have a legitimate need to know this information. These persons can include your supervisor(s), human resources personnel, first aid and safety personnel, personnel investigating compliance with the ADA, and other persons considered to have a legitimate need to know. The law does not prohibit you from voluntarily discussing your condition or medical information with others.
