Accommodation of Disabilities

3. Accommodation of Disabilities

MICA is committed to full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of
1990 as amended (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These and other federal, state and local laws prohibit discrimination against qualified persons with disabilities. Under the ADA, "disability" means a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity of an individual; a record of such an
impairment; or being regarded as having such an impairment. A substantial impairment
is one that significantly limits or restricts a major life activity such as hearing, seeing, speaking, breathing, performing manual tasks, walking, or caring for oneself.

The Associate Vice President for Human Resources, Estevanny Turns, has been designated as the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator responsible for coordinating efforts to comply with these disability laws, including investigation of any complaint.

3.1 Students with Disabilities

MICA is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities with reasonable accommodations and support needed to ensure equal access to all programs and activities of the College.
Requests for accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis. A student requesting any accommodation should first contact the Director of Writing Studio & Learning Resource Center, Dan Gutstein, who coordinates services for students with disabilities. The Director reviews documentation provided by the student and, in consultation with the student, determines which accommodations are appropriate to the student's particular needs

3.2 Employees with Disabilities


Pursuant to the ADA, MICA will provide reasonable accommodation(s) for qualified employees with disabilities. An accommodation is not reasonable if it poses an undue hardship to the College.

An employee with a disability is responsible for making a request for accommodation, in writing, to their Human Resources Specialist and providing appropriate documentation.
