Syllabus Statements

All instructors are encouraged to include in their syllabi a statement inviting students with disabilities to meet with them in a confidential environment to discuss making arrangements for accommodations. This statement both normalizes the accommodation process and help to create a positive and welcoming environment for students with disabilities. The statement also creates a collaborative model for determining and implementing legally mandated accommodations and serves as a reminder to students who need the accommodations that these arrangements need to be made. Below are a few recommended statements you may choose to use or you may consult with Disability Services for additional guidance.
