Concerns and Grievances

There are several options for students to resolve disability-related concerns, complaints, or issues.

Students with disabilities should first discuss their situation with an AEC advisor. Most disability-related issues or complaints are generally resolved at this level. Students may also schedule an appointment to meet with Accessible Education Center Director Hilary Gerdes for resolution.

The Americans with Disabilities Act coordinator is responsible for campus compliance with ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. UO ADA Coordinator Penny Daugherty is in the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity. She can be reached by phone at 541-346-3123 or by email at penny@uoregon.edu.

If concerns are not resolved to mutual satisfaction, students may file an informal or formal grievance with the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity.
