The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
NC State is required to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified applicants or employees with known physical or mental disabilities unless it can be demonstrated that the accommodation would create an undue hardship for the institution or lower quality or production standards.
Under the ADA, it is unlawful to discriminate in employment against individuals with disabilities, or to refuse to accommodate the known disability of an otherwise qualified individual, unless to do so causes undue hardship. As a public entity, NC State University has an obligation under ADA to ensure that there is no discrimination against a qualified individual with a disability in services, programs or activities provided by the University. NC State takes seriously its obligation to accommodate the known disabilities of its faculty, staff, and students and is progressing to make the campus a place where all can learn and work in a barrier-free environment.
