Disability Inclusion Toolkit

HERC has teamed up with alliance partner, the US Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy to provide a new member resource-- The Disability Inclusion Toolkit.

In all employment settings, including higher education, a diverse workforce means more perspectives on how to confront challenges and achieve organizational success.

Getting Started with Disability Inclusion

When it comes to ensuring a workplace inclusive of the skills and talents of people with disabilities, however, not all HERC members may know where to start. The HERC Disability Inclusion Toolkit provides a path, addressing eight important topics and outlining a range of effective strategies higher education institutions can use to effectively employ qualified people with disabilities and foster a disability-inclusive work culture across the organization.

Topics include:

  • Federal Disability Laws
  • Disability Training & Technical Assistance
  • Accessibility
  • Internships & Mentoring
  • Community Outreach
  • Inclusion Across the Lifecycle
  • Accommodations
  • Accountability & Assessment

The Disability Inclusion Toolkit can be accessed by clicking here.
