Disability Accommodation: Information for Applicants
The University of Wisconsin–Madison is
committed to providing a workplace for our employees where they can be
successful. This includes providing reasonable accommodations in order for
qualified employees or applicants with disabilities to have equal employment
opportunities. The Office for Equity and Diversity is responsible for
UW–Madison's compliance with the employment provisions of the American with
Disabilities Act (ADA).
If you are an applicant with a
disability and need reasonable accommodation to assist you in the application
process, please contact the Divisional Disability Representative (DDR) for the
School, College or Division at which you are applying for a position. DDRs are designated
by their deans/directors to facilitate requests for reasonable accommodation.
The DDRs receive training on disability processes and are authorized to
request, receive and maintain confidential medical records for employing units.
