Accommodations for Vulnerable Students, Faculty, & Staff at High Risk

The University recognizes that members of the campus community may be at high risk for COVID-19 or may reside in the same household with someone who is at high risk.

The University’s faculty, where possible, will offer classes in a manner that permits participation by students who are high risk for COVID-19 and wish an accommodation or need to be out of class due to illness or quarantine. Students who are high risk for COVID-19 may request an accommodation by completing the University’s request for disability accommodations. Requests for accommodations will be reviewed by the University’s director of disability services who will work in an iterative manner with the student to identify an appropriate accommodation. Accommodations may include remote learning.

The University has encouraged faculty and staff who are high risk for COVID-19 or who live in the same household with someone who is at high risk for COVID-19 to seek an accommodation by completing a Request for Modified Work Arrangement form. The University’s Human Resources Department will review these requests and will work in an iterative manner with the individual regarding the requested accommodation to identify an appropriate accommodation. Accommodations may include remote teaching or work.
