Personnel Policy Manual
The Johns Hopkins University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, marital status or veteran status in any student program or activity administered by the University or with regard to admission or employment.
The University provides appropriate, necessary and reasonable accommodation to qualified students, faculty, and staff who are disabled.
When generally accessible facilities do not adequately accommodate a specific disability, the University makes program and/or facility adjustments as are reasonably necessary to assure individual access.
For individual-specific accommodations, individuals are required to provide from an appropriate professional diagnostician a comprehensive evaluation of their specific disability and recommended accommodations based upon their current level of functioning in an academic or employment setting. This documentation regarding students should be forwarded directly to the school's disability services coordinator immediately after the school's offer of admission and before the student is enrolled. Evaluation and recommended accommodation for employees should be forwarded directly to the Human Resources Office. The University reserves the right to request additional information from an individual's health care provider, or a health care provider that it designates, to verify appropriate accommodations.
Costs for personal attendants, personally prescribed devices, and services for personal use or study are the responsibility of the disabled student, faculty or staff member.
Questions regarding Title VI, Title IX, and Sections 504 and 503 should be referred to the affirmative action office at 410-516-8075.
