Phi Theta Kappa is committed to providing equal access for all participants of Honors Institute.
Any attendee requiring accommodation(s) in order to participate in Honors Institute must complete a special needs request as part of the registration process by May 27, 2016. Specific requests can also be made via email or by calling 800.946.9995, ext. 3530.
Reasonable dietary, physical, cultural or religious accommodations will be provided upon request if Phi Theta Kappa is given adequate time to secure the requested services, the services are available within the requested time period, and the requested accommodation does not result in an undue hardship as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (“action requiring significant difficulty or expense”), or as otherwise limited by ADA.
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. It sets forth minimum requirements for accessibility of facilities to ensure that someone with a disability has the same access to programs and services, public accommodations, employment, transportation, and telecommunication. The ADA requires the removal of physical and communication barriers to allow someone with a disability an equal opportunity to participate. While there is no way to explain all aspects of this law within the scope of this document, it is important to consider the spirit in which this law was written and make every effort to remove barriers and prevent discrimination.
Transportation, and any associated expenses, to and from events on campus is the responsibility of the attendee. If special assistance is required, please contact by email.
Participants must bring with them to the Honors Institute insurance information, prescription medications and any necessary medical equipment.
