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.


The DDR’s contact information can be found here.
