Reasonable Accommodations

A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment that will enable a qualified student with a disability to participate in a course, program, facility, activity or service and includes adjustments to assure that a qualified individual with a disability has rights and privileges equal to students without disabilities. Reasonable accommodations may include academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, services, or modifications for facilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) stipulates that postsecondary institutions are responsible for providing necessary accommodations when a student discloses a disability. Providing accommodations does not compromise the essential components of a course or curriculum, nor do they weaken the academic standards or integrity of the course. Accommodations provide an alternative way to accomplish course requirements by eliminating or reducing disability related barriers. Accommodations provide a level playing field, not an unfair advantage. Under federal disability law, only if a student has disclosed a disability are postsecondary institutions responsible for providing accommodations.

Calumet College believes volunteering can garner the following benefits: improve relationships with the surrounding community, improve its public image, improve leadership and interpersonal skills of its employees, increase sense of self-worth for the employees, support the quality of life in the community, and give capacity to provide community services that otherwise might not be possible.
