Grievance Procedures

The ADA and Section 504 obligate schools to accommodate, protect from harassment, and refrain from discriminating against students with disabilities

The University of Kansas prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, age, ancestry, disability, status as a veteran, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, gender identity, gender expression and genetic information in the university's programs and activities. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies:  Dorris Wangombe, Program Director, Office of Compliance at 913-588-8011 or, 3901 Rainbow Blvd, MS 7004, Kansas City, KS 66160.

If a student is not satisfied with any decision by the university involving academic adjustments or effective communication, or otherwise believes she or he has been discriminated against on the basis of disability, the student may contact the designated coordinator and/or file a complaint of discrimination in accordance with the university's anti-discrimination grievance procedure entitled KU Medical Center Discrimination Complaint Resolution Process. The student may contact the Vice Chancellor of Student Services, who will consult with KU Medical Center's Legal Affairs personnel prior to or after a complaint of discrimination is filed to attempt to resolve the complaint informally, however, informal or voluntary resolution attempts after a complaint is filed will not delay the investigation of the complaint pursuant to the grievance procedure set forth in the KU Discrimination Complaint Resolution Process.
