SUNY New Paltz has a number of resources available to provide for a more inclusive campus that is free from barriers and bias towards individuals with disabilities.
The Benefits team in the Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion serve as the SUNY New Paltz coordinator of compliance regarding the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) and other federal, state, and local laws. This act requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified prospective and current employees with disabilities, unless doing so would cause undue hardship.
SUNY New Paltz engages in an interactive process to ensure that all parties involved have an opportunity to share information and recommendations for identifying a reasonable accommodation. An interactive process is defined by the ADA as an open dialogue between an employer and an employee to support reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
To learn more about the ADA process at SUNY New Paltz, please complete this brief form and a member of our Benefits staff will reach out to you, or you can reach out directly to the SUNY New Paltz Designees for Reasonable Accommodations (DRA), who are Jane Gallucci (x3169) and Irene Okwang (x3165).
Individuals seeking an accommodation as part of their interest in applying for a position at SUNY New Paltz can reach out to Nancy Moore in the Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 845-257-3184.
Visitors in need of an accommodation to support their access to our campus should contact the hosting department or campus organization for accessibility information.
