Faculty Resources

An environment that is universally designed for learning shows students there are multiple ways to be successful.

Faculty play an important role in ensuring that all individuals, including those with disabilities, have access to course content and instructional activities. Participation in lectures, written assignments, field or lab work, exams, class discussions, and computer applications may be impacted by an individual's disability. There are accessible structures and an accessible framework you can create in your classrooms that can enable all students to learn better, including those with disabilities.

Inclusion and Access in your classroom begin when you are first creating your course.

The structures that create accessible classrooms also create inclusive classrooms where all students learn better. One example of this is making it known that you are attentive to delivering accommodations by inviting students to make an appointment with you to discuss accommodations; this shows an openness to all students about your willingness to help.

Students requesting academic accommodations because of learning challenges associated with their protected disability will present appropriate documentation to support academic accommodation to Student Accessibility Services. Student Accessibility Services, in consulation with individual students, will determine appropriate accommodations to mitigate barriers to access in the learning environment. You will receive a Letter of Accommodation via email outlining a student's approved accommodations.

If, after reviewing a Letter of Accommodation, you believe additional information is necessary or if you believe that any of the accommodations listed would fundamentally alter the nature of your course or academic program, please contact Student Accessibility Services so that we can schedule a meeting to discuss your concerns.



Please contact Student Accessibility Services if you have questions or if we can help regarding any appropriate arrangements for students.
