Federal regulations passed in March, 2014, require employers to invite employees to self-identify their veteran and disability status. We are requesting that employees update their information in the My UW System Portal by October 31, 2016. To provide you with additional background on the basis for this request, please view the FAQ document.
Responses to this survey are confidential and can only be accessed by staff within the Human Resources Office. Please note that completing the survey does NOT initiate an accommodation request for a disability. If you would also like to request an accommodation for a disability, you should complete the accommodation request form found in the FAQ document.
Instructions for updating your portal:
Step 1: Click on this link ‘My UW System’ Portal and log in to the HRS Portal.

Step 3: Click on (view/update) for Disability Status. Follow the prompts to complete the survey.
