It is the disabled individual's responsibility to begin the reasonable accommodation discussion, and the University's responsibility to engage in a good-faith interaction with the individual, so that both parties can cooperate to develop a reasonable accommodation.
- If you feel you are being discriminated against because of a disability or perception of disability, contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action to file a discrimination grievance.
- If you encounter a physical, electronic, or programmatic barrier on the UM campus, such as an inoperative elevator or wheelchair lift, an inaccessible website, a blocked access ramp, or a refusal to make a reasonable accommodation, please file a barrier report to remove those barriers as quickly as possible and maintain access for everyone.
- You may also request mediation for a problem through the Alternative Dispute Resolution process.
