If students, faculty or staff believe they have been subjected to prohibited discrimination, the university has grievance procedures in place to evaluate the complaint.
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 require schools to accommodate, protect from harassment and refrain from discrimination 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.
File a Grievance
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.
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 discrimination complaint 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 Discrimination Complaint Resolution Process.
