Grievance Procedure under the Americans with Disabilities Act
This Grievance Procedure is established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”). It may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, programs, or benefits by Wichita State University. The University’s Personnel Policy 3.47 governs any complaints of disability-related discrimination as well as the appeal process. A complaint can be submitted online
Upon receipt of the complaint, Crissy Magee, ADA/504 Coordinator or her designee will contact the complainant and follow the grievance review process in accordance with policy 3.47. The complainant will receive a written response, and where appropriate, in a format accessible to the complainant, such as large print, Braille, or audio tape, explaining the findings and conclusions of the review and offering options for substantive resolution if warranted.
If the response by Crissy Magee, ADA/504 Coordinator or her designee does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, the complainant and/or his/her designee may appeal the decision in accordance with Wichita State Policy 3.47.
All written complaints received by Crissy Magee, ADA/504 Coordinator, or her designee and all appeals will be reached by the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance in accordance with the most current federal and/or state regulations. Responses to complaints and appeals will be retained by Wichita State University for at least three years.
