Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
In accordance with the provisions contained in university policy, Title I and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, NIU will provide equal employment opportunities for all individuals with a qualified disability who can perform the essential duties of the job with or without reasonable accommodations unless such accommodations would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the university.
NIU will take reasonable steps to ensure that all qualified employees and applicants are treated fairly and equitably, regardless of any physical or mental impairment. The university reserves the right to request verification of an individual's disability. The university will make a reasonable accommodation to all qualified individuals to allow them to perform the essential functions of the job, unless the accommodation(s) results in an undue hardship or places the employee and/or others at substantial harm. The final decision regarding reasonable accommodations is at the sole discretion of the university.
