The Disability Compendium is published every year at the University of New Hampshire. It provides hard and trusted data on all things disability in the United States.
Our ADA Commitment
In accordance with the requirements of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the Office of Disability Concerns will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.
Employment: Office of Disability Concerns does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA.
Effective Communication: Office of Disability Concerns will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in Office of Disability Concerns programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: Office of Disability Concernswill make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in Office of Disability Concerns offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of Office of Disability Concerns, should contact the office of Brenda Hoefar, (405) 202-5163, firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
The ADA does not require the Office of Disability Concerns to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a program, service, or activity of Office of Disability Concerns is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Brenda Hoefar, (405) 202-5163.
Office of Disability Concerns will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
