Grievance Procedure

Lake Forest College does not discriminate on the basis of a disability against any otherwise qualified person by denying him or her participation in, or the benefits of, any College program or activity.

Section 504 requires the adoption of a grievance procedure to deal with allegations of discrimination on the basis of a disability. If a member of the student body feels there is reason to believe that discrimination because of disability has occurred under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a grievance should be handled in the following manner:

  • Individuals with a grievance should notify the Associate Vice President of Human Resources, Lauren Slipkowsky ( of their grievances, in writing. We recommend doing so within seven days of the alleged incident.
  • Failing resolution, individuals should follow appropriate grievance procedures established for sex discrimination.

Additionally, if a member of the student body believes that they have experienced bias on the basis of a disability that may not meet the level of discrimination they can read about the Bias Incident Response Process and report a bias incident by clicking the links below.
