Pregnancy and Parenting Concerns

Resources for Students

UWM is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for pregnant and parenting members of our community. Students may request reasonable accommodations as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary based on the student’s circumstances, but may include: academic accommodations and flexibility (such as breaks during class, excused absences, rescheduling of tests, extensions of deadlines, and alternatives to make up missed work); leaves of absences or changes in work schedules; changes to housing; or other types of accommodations. Students who wish to discuss or request accommodations based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions, or file a report of discrimination based on pregnancy-related concerns should contact the Title IX Office.

Resources for Employees

UWM employees who wish to request a reasonable accommodation related to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related condition should contact Human Resources. UWM employees seeking to file a report of discrimination based on pregnancy-related concerns should contact the Office of Equity/Diversity Services.
