Workplace Accessibility and Accommodations

Bowdoin College is committed to equal opportunity and access for people with disabilities.

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the ADA Amendment Act, the College does not exclude otherwise qualified persons with disabilities from participating in employment opportunities and College programs and activities. 

A workplace accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a person with a disability to participate in the job application process, to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by all staff.

All employee requests for an accommodation and accompanying medical information will be reviewed and kept confidential consistent with state and federal law.


To request a workplace accommodation, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contact:

Faculty who require a medical accommodation that arise during the year, please contact Human Resources so accommodative arrangements can be made as soon as possible.
