Employee Benefits: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

It is the policy of Texas Woman's University (TWU) to provide equal access and opportunity to employees having a known physical or mental impairment as defined under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act. TWU prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all aspects of the application process and the employment relationship.

Faculty and staff with disabilities may request accommodations by contacting the Office of Human Resources (OHR) or refer to the TWU 3.14 "Americans with Disabilities Act" policy.

Students must contact the Disability Support Services Office to request assistance with accommodations.
