Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The University of Denver fully complies with the reasonable accommodation requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the law, agencies must provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees or applicants with disabilities, unless to do so would cause undue hardship. The University is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to its employees and applicants for employment in order to assure that individuals with disabilities enjoy full access to equal employment opportunity at the University.
The University provides reasonable accommodations:
• when an applicant with a disability needs an accommodation in order to be considered for a job;
• when an employee with a disability needs an accommodation to enable him or her to perform the essential functions of the job or to gain access to the workplace; and
• when an employee with a disability needs an accommodation to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment.
Should you wish to request reasonable accommodation, please contact Director of Benefits, Lloyd Moore @ firstname.lastname@example.org.

Center for Multicultural Excellence
The Center for Multicultural Excellence challenges the University of Denver community to create a campus climate that ensure all of its members are valued, supported and thrive by embracing and engaging our social identities.
CME offers a range of resources in support of DU's pursuit of Inclusive Excellence and are happy to consult with employees by email, phone or in person.
Child Care & Family Resources
Caring for our families is a growing challenge for faculty, staff members, and students. Those who are parents or guardians want to insure the healthy growth and development of their children. Those with aging parents or relatives hope to provide comfort, companionship, and quality medical care for them. Many at DU fulfill both of these needs for their loved ones. Child Care and Family Resources is a website dedicated to the needs of DU caregivers. Our priority is to provide resources and services that strengthen and support families of students, faculty, and staff.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
All University of Denver employees are eligible for the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
University employees can attend up to six counseling sessions each fiscal year at the HCC: the initial consult + 5 sessions. All individual EAP visits are a covered benefit for University employees and are available at no additional fee.
University employees may also elect to use their counseling benefit to conduct couples counseling.
The EAP benefit will cover couples counseling (subject to the 6 session limit) even if the spouse or partner is not a DU employee. The spouse or partner is not eligible to receive individual counseling.
For Faculty Resources, please visit the Office of the Provost.
Internal Audit Hotline
The University of Denver is committed to full compliance with state and federal laws. To meet this compliance commitment, the University needs to know when there are potential compliance problems. You are encouraged to let the University know when you suspect there has been or may be a compliance issue.

Absent your input, it is difficult for the University to meet its full compliance goal.
