Disability Accommodations

Reasonable Accommodations

UW-Green Bay has a strong commitment to a diverse workplace and learning community, a distinguished faculty and staff, and excellent students. We strive to provide quality educational and employment opportunities for everyone, especially qualified individuals with disabilities. The University is dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations to qualified students, employees, and all those with disabilities participating in its programs and services. This is done in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and as detailed in our Affirmative Action plan and program.

Faculty and Staff

If you are a qualified employee with a disability, you may request reasonable accommodation from your supervisor, chair, dean, or the Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity by completing the Request for Reasonable Accommodation.

Individuals requesting accommodation may be required to provide medical documentation regarding the disability and requested accommodation.  Please work with your medical provider to complete a Documentation of Disability to assist with the accommodation process.

Medical information provided will be maintained in the Office of Human Resources, separate from personnel files, and is strictly confidential. Only information related to the provision of reasonable accommodation or information necessary to address safety issues in the work setting will be released to supervisors. 

If you have questions about your rights under the ADA, whether you are a qualified individual with a disability, or the documentation required to establish that status, you should contact the Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity at (920) 465-2390 or via email at hr@uwgb.edu.

Individuals, supervisors, or individuals with their supervisors may contact our office and schedule an appointment to determine eligibility and the reasonable, effective accommodation(s) that would best enable the individuals to successfully perform the essential functions of their positions.

Supervisors and Administrators

How do you determine if accommodation requests are appropriate and effective? What is reasonable? What are the recordkeeping requirements? If you want to know more about ADA compliance or have questions about individual requests, please contact the Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity for information.

Applicants for Employment

The policy of UW-Green Bay is to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified persons with disabilities who are applicants for employment.  If you need assistance or accommodations during the application process, please contact Human Resources at (920) 465-2390 or hr@uwgb.edu. Employment opportunities will not be denied to anyone because of the need to make reasonable accommodations. 
 

Participants in Programs and Services

We encourage anyone requiring reasonable accommodation for participation in any program or service offered by UW-Green Bay to contact the event sponsor well in advance of the event for details on arranging services.

Comments, questions, or inquiries relating to physical access, web access, or requests for information related to UW-Green Bay’s compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 should be directed to the Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity.

Students

If you are a UW-Green Bay student and need reasonable accommodation, you should contact Disability Services, where staff members are available to answer questions and assist you.
