The University of Wisconsin-Madison provides specific processes for visitors and program participants who are neither employees nor students of the institution to follow to request an accommodation, or to file a formal appeal or grievance when there is alleged discrimination on the basis of disability.
The process is designed to provide for a prompt response to reasonable accommodation requests and an equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Title II states, in part, that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” in programs, services or activities sponsored by a public entity.
