Disability-Related Services and Assistance
The Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services (EOIRS) provides specific services for faculty and staff, and for students, and additional services for all members of the Syracuse University (SU) community. These include:
For Faculty & Staff
Accommodations. The Accommodation Specialist will work with you to identify modifications or changes to a job or the work environment to assist with job responsibilities, so that an employee with a disability is able to perform essential job functions. Visit the Faculty & Staff Accommodations.
