The university’s syllabus policy requires that all courses taught in a traditional classroom setting include a statement on accommodations for students with disabilities. The Office of Services for Students with Disabilities has recently updated its recommended policy statement to the following:

The University strives to make all learning experiences as accessible as possible. If you anticipate or experience barriers based on your disability (including mental health, chronic or temporary medical conditions), please let me know immediately so that we can discuss options privately. To establish reasonable accommodations, I may request that you register with Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). If you are eligible for services and register with their office, make arrangements with me as soon as possible to discuss your accommodations so they can be implemented in a timely manner. SSD contact information: 232 Canfield Admin Bldg.; 402-472-3787

Resources and information on how to best support students with disabilities can be found on the SSD website.

More information about the university syllabus policy can be found on the Faculty Senate website under Policies and Documents.
