Disability Inclusion Starts With You

Voluntarily self-identifying is a good thing. It's how things change. The video below, from the US Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, explains why companies doing business with the federal government ask job applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify if they have a disability, and the important role that self-identifying plays in ensuring equal employment opportunity for people with disabilities.

Service Dogs on Campus

Individuals with disabilities may be accompanied by working service dogs on the campus of Michigan Technological University. 

A service dog is a dog that has been individually trained to perform work or tasks to assist a person with a disability. An individual with a service dog may access all public facilities, with the exception of areas where service animals are specifically prohibited due to safety or health restrictions, where the service animal may be in danger, or where the service animal’s use may compromise the integrity of research.

To learn more, please download Michigan Tech's Service Animal Procedures and visit the Service Animal Resource Hub presented by the ADA National Network.
