For Employees

Over the past many years, Grinnell has made great progress in providing an accessible and supportive environment for students, faculty, and staff. Each of us has a role in continuing that improvement, and many of us have benefited from them as well.

The ADA Coordinator and Assistant Dean for Disability Resources, Autumn Wilke, is responsible for employee accommodations at Grinnell. Grinnell is an equal opportunity employer.


See Grinnell's College Policies for policies relating to nondiscrimination, disabilities, privacy, and confidentiality, among others.

Requesting Accommodations

If you are:

  • Faculty or staff and need an accommodation, contact the ADA coordinator. You will need to complete a request for accommodations.
  • A student employed by the College and need accommodations for your employment, you can contact the ADA coordinator who can help you complete the necessary forms and navigate the process. 

Refer to the Staff Handbook (PDF, login required), Appendix III, for policies regarding accommodations for employees of the College, also shown below:
