Our Mission

Disability Resources Staff

Disability Resources facilitates an accessible community where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of the educational environment. This occurs through partnerships with students, faculty, staff, and the community to promote students' independence and inclusion to ensure recognition of their abilities, not their disabilities.

This procedure was established to comply with the ADA/Section 504 mandate to “provide for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action that would be prohibited.”

Student

If a student does not agree with a recommended accommodation, or has been denied accommodation(s), the student may file a complaint through the Disability Resources Complaint Process. An individual needing accommodation(s) to participate in this complaint process should contact the Director of Human Resources (504/ADA Compliance Officer) for assistance.

Faculty

A faculty or a staff member who does not agree with an accommodation recommendation for a student should contact the Disability Resources Coordinator immediately. A faculty or staff member may also utilize the complaint process. A faculty- or staff-initiated complaint cannot delay the implementation of an accommodation that Disability Resources believes to be in compliance with ADA.

1. The following steps have been outlined to address complaints or grievances:

  1. If informal discussions with College personnel have not resolved the issue, the individual shall submit a written or recorded complaint to the Director of Student Access and Success, or his/her designee, within 10 working days of the event(s) that triggered the complaint.
  2. The Director of Student Access and Success, or his/her designee, shall meet with the individual within 10 working days of the receipt of the complaint.
  3. If this meeting does not resolve the complaint, the Director of student Access and Success, or his/her designee, will forward the written complaint, within three working days of the meeting, to the Director of Human Resources (504/ADA Compliance Officer).
  4. Within 10 working days of receiving the official complaint, the Director of Human Resources (504/ADA Compliance Officer), or his/her designee, will appoint an ad hoc committee to investigate the complaint. This committee will be chaired by the Human Resources Director or his/her designee. The investigation will proceed promptly.
  5. Within five working days following the conclusion of the investigation, the chair of the ad hoc committee will provide its recommendation to the College President.
  6. Within 15 working days of the receipt of the recommendations from the committee, the College President will make a decision regarding the complaint and provide a written notice of the decision to all parties involved.

Disability Resources at CCC promotes an inclusive educational environment. We believe in fostering student success by providing students access to the college experience. One of our goals is to collaborate with instructors in an effort to assist them in complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Our office is available to provide consultation and training on the accommodation process and other disability-related issues upon request. Please review our website and feel free to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.
