Randolph College is committed to complying fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as applicable state and local laws to ensure equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with disabilities. All employment practices, decisions, and activities are conducted on a non-discriminatory basis.

The College continually reviews its hiring practices, as well as its available jobs and promotional opportunities, to ensure that persons with disabilities have equal access to meaningful employment opportunities. Hiring and selection decisions are made based on an individual’s ability to perform the essential duties and functions of the job.

The College will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship on the College. Employees with a disability who think they need a reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of their job, or to access an employment benefit, should contact the Human Resources Department. An employee requesting a reasonable accommodation will be asked to complete a Reasonable Accommodation Request Form.

Randolph College encourages individuals with disabilities to come forward and request reasonable accommodations at any point in an employee’s employment, if such an accommodation is needed to perform the essential functions of the job or to access an employment benefit.

An employee or job applicant who has questions regarding this policy or who believes that he or she has been discriminated against based on a disability should notify the Human Resources Department. All such inquiries or complaints will be treated as confidential to the extent permissible by law.
