Accommodations for Vulnerable Populations

Accommodations for Vulnerable Populations


The College is committed to complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) as well as with other relevant federal, state and local disability laws.  The College will provide reasonable accommodations to a qualified individual with a disability who has made the College aware of their disability and has engaged in an interactive process with the College to determine appropriate and reasonable accommodations (unless doing so places an undue hardship on the College or represents a fundamental alteration of the job, program or course).

Individuals with disabilities who believe they need reasonable accommodations to perform the essential functions of their job or to participate fully and equally in their education should contact the Office of Access and Services for Individuals with Disabilities (OASID) at: www.tc.columbia.edu/oasid, (212) 678-3689, or via email at oasid@tc.columbia.edu to discuss those concerns with OASID staff. Individuals will be asked to submit medical or clinical documentation to OASID. OASID staff will review the documentation and discuss with the individual whether the health condition qualifies as a disability and what types of reasonable accommodations are available to perform the essential functions of their job or participate fully and equally in their education.

In addition, the College is committed to fostering a campus that is equally accessible to employees, students and applicants.  Individuals with disabilities who have physical or digital access needs to the Teachers College community should also contact OASID to discuss their concerns.
