UCR Is Committed to Non-Discrimination
The University of California Riverside (UCR) is committed to full compliance with laws and policies protecting individuals with disabilities. If an individual has a concern regarding accessibility, reasonable accommodations, or suspected disability discrimination, they may contact the ADA Compliance Coordinator to discuss informal resolution of concerns or procedures for filing a formal complaint.
Individuals are encouraged to report prohibited conduct as soon as possible, optimally within a year, after the alleged conduct occurs. Prompt reporting will enable the university to investigate the facts, determine the issues, and provide an appropriate remedy or corrective action. Delays in reporting may impede the university’s ability to conduct an investigation and/or affect appropriate actions. Reports may be made anonymously, however anonymous reporting may limit the university’s ability to respond to the report.
Please Note: Using campus grievance procedures does not preclude the right to file a complaint with the appropriate state or federal agency, or to take legal action.
