University Programs

Any activity open to the public must provide reasonable accommodation to any participant with a disability, including members of the community. All events open to the public must be held in accessible locations. Publicity for such events must include notice about how to request disability-related accommodations.

Accessibility of Electronic Resources

The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that an educational institution make its programs, services, and activities accessible to, and usable by, people with disabilities. When faculty and staff use the Internet to provide information, they are required to make that information accessible to those using adaptive technology.

UC Hastings is committed to ensuring that all electronic resources (web pages, Word documents, Adobe PDF files, graphic images, online forms, etc.) are fully compliant with accessibility standards. We are working with the Center for Accessible Technology to develop guidelines and testing procedures for staff and faculty in creating these resources to be fully screen-readable. We invite comments from disabled users to help improve any issues that they may encounter.

Grievance Procedures

UC Hastings policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Staff, faculty, students, and community members who believe they have been denied access or discriminated against due to their disability are encouraged to bring their concerns to the attention of the appropriate party who will make every attempt to address the issues raised and/or will refer the matter for investigation per campus policies and procedures.
