ADA Accommodations

The university is committed to providing equal opportunity to all qualified applicants and employees. To that end, UMKC will provide reasonable accommodations for the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability, unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, employment practice or the work environment that makes it possible for a qualified individual with a disability to enjoy an equal employment opportunity.

If you would like to request an ADA accommodation, please complete the following form and submit it to Mikah K. Thompson, ADA coordinator, at thompsonmikah@umkc.edu.
