Welcome to the McBurney Disability Resource Center, an office within Student Affairs. We view disability as an important aspect of the diversity of UW-Madison and are committed to creating an accessible and inclusive educational experience for students. We do this by partnering with students, faculty, and staff to design accessible environments and to provide academic accommodations so that students can engage, explore and participate in the Wisconsin Idea. Whether you are a student or instructor, are new to campus or are already quite familiar, have a long history of accommodations or are just exploring disability-related accommodations for the first time, we invite you to learn more about the Center and to contact us with any questions you may have.

Instructor Guide to Student Accommodations

The Instructor Guide to Student Accommodations is a new, four topic resource for both new and current instructors (faculty, instructional staff, and TAs).  You can go through it start to finish or reference it as questions arise.
