Disability Policies and Guidelines: Grievances
William Jewell College promotes an environment of respect and support for individuals with disabilities, and will make reasonable accommodations for such individuals pursuant to applicable law. William Jewell College has an internal grievance procedure that works toward an equitable resolution, within a reasonable timeframe, for any individual with a disability who wishes to address a concern or file a complaint regarding his/her accommodation status.
If a an individual feels that he/she is not receiving the appropriate accommodation or is experiencing difficulties with current accommodations, he/she should contact the 504 and Compliance Coordinator, Missy Henry, at 816-415-7556 or henrymr AT william.jewell DOT edu as soon as possible. The 504 and Compliance Coordinator will work with all parties involved to resolve the issue.
Complaints by individuals with disabilities, who allege their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, or the Fair Housing Act have been violated due to discrimination or harassment, should reference the following policies for reporting information:
Anti-Harassment and Grievance Procedure
Non-Discrimination and Equal Opportunity Notice
Individuals are encouraged to attempt to resolve grievances internally; however, they also have the right to file a complaint at any time with the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights.
