* Demographic Information Request

Annually, the Universities of Wisconsin are required to report employee demographic information to comply with federal Affirmative Action regulations.

As part of this process, you have the opportunity to self-identify as an individual with a disability and/or as a protected veteran. Submission of this information is voluntary and confidential. If you decide not to self-identify at this time, you may do so at any time in the future.

If you have questions or need a reasonable accommodation to perform your job duties, please contact Human Resources at or 920-465-2203.
