Samford University is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities, and so strives to remove barriers to its programs wherever they may exist through systematic barrier removal, proper and timely maintenance, encouraging universal design, etc. In the event you encounter a barrier on the SU campus, such as an inoperative elevator, bicycles blocking an access ramp, or problems in the Technology Labs, we need you to notify us so the University can remove barriers or explore solutions as quickly as possible.
Reports about barriers may be made by submitting detailed information including exact location, date, and time of barrier, and how situation presents a barrier to equal access to firstname.lastname@example.org. For readily achievable barrier removal after normal business hours for circumstances such as a bike blocking a ramp, contact the Samford University information desk, The Hub, at 205-726-2407.
Information submitted does not constitute a formal complaint or grievance. However, Samford University will follow up in as timely a manner as possible.
