Campus ADA Transition Plan

As noted on July 17, 2018, over the summer and fall the University has been, and will continue to be, assessing campus spaces in order to develop a comprehensive Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan. Please go to Capital Planning & Facilities Management, to view updated schedules and the original schedules (dated 6-28-2018), as noted in the below message.

Over the next eight months, the University will be developing a comprehensive Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for our campus. We have contracted with SZS Engineering Access, Inc. to provide the assessment. Between the weeks of July 23 and November 5, 2018, SZS will be walking through campus buildings to take measurements and assess spaces.  SZS will be at the Acacia Hall site the week of November 5, 2018. You may review the schedule with anticipated dates that they will be in each campus building. The schedule is subject to change and as it does we will send out updates to the campus.

Please contact Melody Maffei, mmaffei@csustan.edu or Tim Overgaauw, tovergaauw@csustan.edu with questions or concerns.

Notice of Disability Resource Services

July 30, 2018

Welcome back for Fall Semester! As we prepare to assist all students in their academic endeavors, this is a reminder that California State University policies require all students requesting academic accommodations to register with our Office of Disability Resource Services (CSU EO 1111 and Coded Memo AA-2014-08).

Students who are approved to receive disability-related accommodations will provide you a DRS Letter of Accommodations. If a student is unable to provide you the DRS letter, DRS will email you the letter. DRS provides notice of University-approved academic accommodations only. If a student requests work-related accommodations, please refer them to HR Director, Rebekah Temple at 209-667-3351 or MSR 320.

Our goal is that the DRS Letter of Accommodations thoroughly explains the University-approved accommodations provided to a student after appropriate documentation has been reviewed by the office. If any part of the letter is unclear or if you have questions, please contact DRS at 209-667-3159.

Please know that all accommodations in a DRS Letter of Accommodations are discussed with students and agreed upon before the letter is distributed. Providing unapproved accommodations could lead to unanticipated consequences. If you believe a student requires a different accommodation or the student discusses an alternative accommodation with you, please refer them back to DRS. Students denied a specific accommodation by DRS, are provided an accommodation appeal and grievance process as required by applicable laws.

More information about the Accommodation Denial Appeal and Grievance Process can be found on the Policies, Procedures and Guidelines DRS website.

Please contact DRS if you have questions and thank you for making Stanislaus State an equitable and accessible university.
