The University of Connecticut is committed to achieving equal educational and employment opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. As part of this commitment, OIE provides training to increase awareness and understanding of disability access and responsibilities at the University. This training can be tailored to meet your needs and includes a general overview of federal disability laws and University Policies related to accessibility along with the rights and responsibilities of students, faculty and staff to ensure equal educational and employment opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. Information on the following topics are often included as part of the training: accommodation procedures, service and emotional support animals, video captioning, interpreting services, event planning, website accessibility and physical access. OIE may partner with other departments, including the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD), Department of Human Resources (HR) or Information and Technology Services (ITS) to provide a more focused training or discussion on a specific accessibility topic.
