Student & Employee Accessibility Services (SEAS) provides support to employees who believe they may have a physical, medical, sensory or learning-related condition that is impacting them in the workplace. SEAS is the office designated to approve and coordinate all accommodations and services for employees with disabilities.

 The functions SEAS serves include the following:

  • Serving as consultant to employees  who are still determining if they have a qualifying disability
  • Assisting employees who have documented physical, psychological, sensory, and learning disabilities in requesting workplace accommodations
  • Working with supervisors and employees in determining reasonable accommodations
  • Developing and implementing University-wide programs and policies to meet disability needs
  • Educating the Brown Community about disabilities through various forums and thus, acting as an advocate for employees with disabilities
  • Serving as a resource center to the Brown community and beyond about available disability services within the University
  • Working with offices and departments to ensure employees with disabilities have access to their programs and services
  • Maintaining a resource library of disability information, services, and equipment
