Accessibility and Inclusion under the ADA

Employment and Programs

The LSU AgCenter is fully committed to fostering an inclusive environment to support persons with disabilities as well as meeting the requirements of the ADA including both:

  1. Title I: Prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in all employment practices, including recruitment, hiring, advancement, compensation, fringe benefits, job training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment.
  1. Title II: Ensures qualified individuals with disabilities have equal access to the full range of programs, services, activities and facilities of the agency.

In both instances and upon request, the LSU AgCenter will engage in an interactive process and make every effort to offer a reasonable accommodation, unless the Requestor is not a qualified individual; doing so poses an undue hardship to the agency; or poses a direct threat to the health or safety of the individual with a disability or others.
