The University’s disability accommodation process is designed to explore reasonable accommodations for employees (including student employees) with medical conditions or disabilities. The process is intended to be interactive and collaborative, relying on open communication and active participation between you and the University. The primary goal of this process is to help you to perform all of the essential functions of your current position, with or without accommodation.

Accommodations are provided on an individual basis and created in collaboration with the requesting employee, the appropriate University personnel, and the Disability Services Office (DSO). For more information about the disability accommodation process for employees, read the UW Human Resources disability accommodation policy or contact DSO at
