Accommodating Faculty Members Who Have Disabilities. Report
American Association of University Professors
In recent years the rights and responsibilities of students who have disabilities have received considerable attention. Professors routinely accommodate students with a front-row seat in class or extended time on an examination. Faculty members who have disabilities have received far less attention. This report from a subcommittee of Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure addresses practical and legal issues concerning faculty members who have disabilities. Appended are: (1) ADA Policy for Faculty Members Who Have Disabilities; (2) Disability and Hiring: Guidelines for Departmental Search Committees; and (3) Litigation over Dismissal of Faculty with Disabilities (Laura Rothstein). A list of selected resources is included. (Contains 23 footnotes.)
