Disability Services and Resources for Applicants and Employees
Wilmington University is committed to providing accessibility and reasonable accommodations to all who visit, work, and study on campus. We want members of the Wilmington University community and their guests to feel at home and take advantage of the services that they need. We hope you will find answers to any questions you may have about disability resources and services from this website.
Accommodating Persons with a Disability
The ADA prohibits employment discrimination against "qualified individuals with disabilities." A qualified individual with a disability is any individual with a disability who is qualified for (meets the skill, experience, education, and other job-related requirements) a position held or desired, and who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of a job.
Wilmington University supports the advancement of qualified employees with disabilities at all levels. The University recognizes that traditional methods, programs, and services may not accommodate the needs of some persons with disabilities. Each qualified person with a disability shall receive the reasonable accommodation necessary to ensure equal access to employment, training opportunities, advancement, and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate. Wilmington University does reserve the right to only provide accommodations which do not place an undue hardship on the University.
Employees who require a reasonable accommodation to apply for transfers or promotions or to perform the essential functions of their jobs should notify the Human Resources Department. Employees who believe that they have been unlawfully discriminated against because of their disability may file a complaint with the Human Resources Department. Requests for accommodations should be made at the earliest possible date, in most instances at least (30) days prior to the date by which an accommodation is needed.
