HR Policy Spotlight

Americans With Disabilities Act

Baylor has formalized a policy which states its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Additionally, there is now a formal process by which faculty and staff may request an accommodation for a qualifying disability. The ADA Accommodation Requests page outlines the application process and includes links to the Policy, the Request form, and the Medical Certification form.


Tobacco-Free and Smoke-Free Campus

Because of the desire to protect the health and lives of everyone in the Baylor community, a new policy has been developed that will ban smoking and the use of all tobacco products on all property that is owned, operated, leased, occupied or controlled by the University. The policy will be effective August 4, 2014. Visit the Tobacco-Free, Smoke-Free Campus page for further information. Visit BU-PP 040 to view the policy. Smoking cessation programs will be offered and encouraged for all faculty and staff. Contact: Human Resources 254.710.2000 or askHR@baylor.edu.
