Accessibility Services Office (Students with Disabilities)
The University of New Mexico-Taos is committed to the recognition and the proactive pursuit of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). UNM-Taos makes reasonable accommodation to the religious observances/national origin practices of a student, an employee or prospective employee, and to the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified student, employee, applicant or program user with a disability, unless such accommodations have the end result of fundamentally altering a program or service or placing an undue hardship on the operation of the University. Qualified students, employees or program users with disabilities should contact the Office of Equal Opportunity or Accessibility Resource Center for information regarding accommodations in the employment and/or academic setting. To comply with the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, UNM-Taos provides the information in this publication in alternative formats. If you have a special need and require an auxiliary aide and/or service, contact Accessibility Resource Office at 575-737-6202.
Working with students with disabilities should be a partnership among the faculty member, the student, and the accessibility services coordinator. Working in partnership will provide support for the faculty member and the best opportunity for student success.University ADA Policies: UNM Catalog:
