Reasonable Accommodation Policy Term Definition

Change or modification that enables a qualified individual with a disability to enjoy equal opportunity and/or access. Reasonable accommodation is required for persons with known physical or mental limitations arising from disabilities. UTMB is not required to provide “best” or “most desired” accommodation; the University can meet this obligation as long as its proposed accommodations are sufficient to satisfy the employment, learning or accessibility needs of the employee or student. Whether a proposed accommodation is reasonable will be determined by the ADA Coordinator. Accommodations that constitute an undue hardship are not reasonable.  Leave may be considered as a reasonable accommodation in consideration of the Americans with Disability Act.
