Handbook Category #3]
It is the policy of St. Olaf College not to discriminate against any employee or student
on the basis of a disability or illness (1990 ADA). Individuals infected with HIV will be
treated in the same manner as employees or students who have comparable health
concerns, that is, with due regard for the health and safety of both the
infected individuals and other employees and students. If accommodation is
required by any student, faculty or staff member with AIDS or HIV infection for
college activities, programs or facilities, the need will be addressed on an
individual basis by appropriate administrative officers (dean of students, dean
of the college, or the work supervisor), in consultation with the college
physician. In all cases, the infected person's interest in privacy and
confidentiality will be respected, and the college will treat him or her with
the care and compassion all of God's children should receive.
The college continues
to expand its health education program and urges all members of the community
to become and remain fully informed about HIV/AIDS.
