UAF is committed to ensuring that students, employees, and visitors can fully participate in safe and welcoming academic and employment environments.
This means we provide a variety of support resources and accommodations, which may include services, acquiring or modifying equipment, providing flexible leave or modifying work schedules, or providing qualified readers or interpreters.
Resources for persons with limited English proficiency
Individuals who do not speak English as their primary language and who have a limited ability to read, speak, write, or understand English can be limited English proficient, or "LEP." These individuals may be entitled under Title VI to language assistance with respect to a particular type of service, benefit, or encounter.
If an individual would like assistance with translators or interpreters, they must notify the staff or contact the program administrator listed on the event or class flyer or by notifying UAF Department of Equity and Compliance for assistance via phone (907) 474-7300, by walk-in or at uaf-DEO@alaska.edu. The staff member or administrator will work with the individual to assist them with resources and address their needs.
There are several resources administrators can utilize in assisting with supporting individuals with limited English Proficiency, such as digital services, glossaries, creating multilingual content, and translation services.
