Freedom of thought and expression 

The faculty and administration of UW-L believe that it is the task of the university to make people safe for ideas,
not to make ideas safe for people. Beyond formal lectures and laboratory experiences, the university provides opportunities 
for the presentation of diverse views to stimulate thought and discussion in the university community. It is the responsibility of 
the university to strive, over a period of time, to attain a diversified presentation of ideas by people who are engaged in research
and social dialogue. Thus, the university seeks to increase student exposure to the ever-expanding world of ideas. In a 
democratic society we can do no less. No one shall be compelled to attend or listen. All must be free to hear. The appearance 
of any particular speaker on campus implies neither approval nor disapproval by the administration or the faculty of what 
that speaker says. 

Civil Rights 

UW-L is totally committed to providing equal educational and employment opportunity regardless of gender, race, color, 
creed, religion, national origin, disability, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital or parental status. Title IX 
of the Educational Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in any educational program or activity
receiving federal financial assistance by way of grant, contract or loan. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is similar in its 
prohibition of discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the 
American Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibit discrimination on the basis of physical or mental handicap. Equal educational
opportunity includes: admission, recruitment, extracurricular programs and activities, housing facilities, access to course 
offerings, counseling and testing, financial assistance, employment, health and insurance services and athletics. Sexual harassment
is a form of sex discrimination that is unlawful and contrary to the fundamental standards of a university community. All grievances,
questions or requests for information should be referred to the Affirmative Action Officer, 235 Graff Main Hall. 

Disabilities Accessibility 

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of handicap. Ongoing efforts are being made
to ensure that facilities and programs are accessible to all students with permanent or temporary disabilities. All students must 
present documentation (no older than three years) of their disabilities in order to receive ongoing accommodations.

Direct student services to those with physical or learning disabilities include, but are not limited to: classroom note takers, tutors, 
class pre registration, taped textbooks, academic advising, and equipment loan. Specific requests for assistance or information 
should be directed to the Coordinator of the Disability Resource Services office in 165 Murphy Library.

Both disabled and able-bodied students are eligible to join Students Advocating Potential Ability (SAPA), a campus organization
formed (1) to give academic and social support to students with permanent or temporary disabilities; (2) to facilitate awareness
of these studentsí needs; (3) to support the basic rights of all students and to resist discrimination in any form for or against people
with disabilities.
