LAWRENCE — The ADA Resource Center for Equity & Accessibility has a new staff position to support University of Kansas employees who need a workplace accommodation. As the Resource Center’s first accommodation specialist, Abby King helps KU employees navigate the accommodation process by providing information, guidance, consultation and technical assistance regarding KU, state and federal requirements and procedures.
King joined the ADA Resource Center in July. She previously served as office manager for KU’s Human Resource Management. King earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in human resources and a human resources graduate certificate from the KU School of Business. She is active in the Kansas chapter of the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources, and she currently serves as president-elect.
King provides support for individuals interested in seeking a workplace accommodation and is available to meet with employees interested in the process. She will engage with all campus stakeholders to provide support for employees, applicants, visitors and others during the reasonable accommodation process.
In addition to adding the new accommodation specialist position, the ADA Resource Center for Equity & Accessibility is relocating to 117 Carruth. The Resource Center is in the process of remodeling the space for accessibility and will host an open house in early fall.
