Disability and Veteran Status

To comply with U.S. federal government guidelines for individuals with disabilities and veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, Western Michigan University is required to collect information regarding disability and veteran status.

All faculty and staff are asked to assist our University in meeting this requirement by reviewing and, if necessary, updating two sections of the personal information section in Employee Self Service.

Visit the My Self Service channel in GoWMU, select Employee Self Service and then Main Menu, Self Service, Personal Information and Personal Information Summary. Scroll down to the Employee Information section to review your military and disability status.

If you wish to update your military status or self-identify as an individual with a disability, please select the Change Employee Information button, place a “Y” for yes in the appropriate box and then click save. There are links to additional information about veteran and disability status on the employee information page.

Additional instructions are available at Employee Self-Service Guides.
