Submitting a Grievance
It is the policy of Marywood University not to discriminate on the basis of disability. The University has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of grievances by either students or employees alleging any action prohibited by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. § 794) or the relevant U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regulations implementing the Act (34 C.F.R. Part 104) (together, "Section 504"). Section 504 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. The Law and Regulations may be examined in the office of the Section 504 Coordinator, Dr. Patricia E. Dunleavy, Assistant Vice President for Human Resources and Affirmative Action Officer, who has been designated to coordinate the efforts of the University to comply with Section 504.
Students are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services at the first sign of any difficulties obtaining their approved academic accommodations from faculty, or if they encounter difficulties related to their disabilities from any Marywood University staff, administrators, or students.
