Diversity at UCSD includes people with disabilities.
A definition of disability
Disability is a broad term that includes a variety of functional limitations resulting from medical impairments due to causes that include heredity, accidents, illnesses, and syndromes. The functional limitations causing disabilities can be physical and evident (e.g., mobility, vision, or hearing) or invisible (e.g., a psychological condition, heart disease, or learning disability).
In its hiring and employment practices, UCSD must make its programs, services, and activities accessible to qualified individuals with disabilities and must provide reasonable job accommodations.
- All members of the UCSD community share the responsibility for helping people with disabilities participate in campus programs, services, and activities.
- Employees must provide medical documentation of medical impairment when requesting a job accommodation.
