Disability Resource Center
College policy does not allow faculty to offer accommodations to students without written authorization from the DRC. Faculty will include in their class syllabus each semester the following statement:
"Students with medical, psychological, learning or other disabilities desiring accommodations or services under ADA, should contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC ). The DRC determines eligibility for and authorizes the provision of these accommodations and services for the college." Please contact the DRC at the Student Center, Suite 244, Redwood Campus, 4600 So. Redwood Rd, 84123. Phone: 801-957-4659, TTY: 801-957-4646, Fax: 801-957-4947 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org"
Students requesting accommodations or services from faculty will be told to contact the DRC. Faculty can suggest to students, who appear to be having a difficult time, who might have a disability, they should consider contacting the DRC about assistance.
Faculty will provide accommodations to each student as authorized by the DRC. Faculty should be aware that they will be informed only about student limitations and the accommodations necessary for their class. Faculty should understand that services provided by them, without authorization from the DRC may put themselves personally and college, as an institution, at legal risk.
Faculty will respect the legal rights of the student to confidentiality and shall not discuss any accommodations, limitations or medical or disability related information with anyone other than the DRC or the ADA Coordinator.
Faculty should expect students with disabilities to meet all expected course standards, assignments and attendance requirements. Faculty is encouraged to consult with the DRC when there is a need to better understand the authorized accommodations, when they do not seem to be adequate or if they feel it impacts on course curriculum or standards.
Faculty who are dealing with disruptive students should consult with the Policy: "FACULTY PREROGATIVES IN MAINTAINING A SAFE, SUPPORTIVE, AND EFFECTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT".
Faculty is encouraged to contact the DRC regarding ADA eligibility requirements, available accommodations, any other questions or concerns regarding college procedures or policies. Questions or concerns about ADA related matters, may also be directed to Mikel Birch, ADA Manager.
ADA Accommodations for Faculty and Staff

Full time faculty, adjunct faculty, full time staff, hourly staff members, work study and other personnel who have disabilities and desire accommodations under ADA, for themselves, must apply for assistance through Human Resources. All inquiries as to services and procedures should be directed to Kay Waters at HR. She will make a determination as to eligibility, authorize accommodations and coordinate their implementation with the relevant department.
Physical access to or within buildings, parking and grounds is the responsibility of the ADA Coordinator, Nancy Sanchez.
Accessible parking and applications for special parking permits are handled through Parking Services.
