Accessibility syllabus statement
We encourage you to begin the semester with a general announcement or statement included in your course syllabus, inviting students to express their need for course accommodations, auxiliary aids or services.
A disability statement opens the lines of communication, making students feel more comfortable when approaching faculty to disclose the course accommodations or other disability-related needs. A syllabus statement also helps to ensure that all students are aware of the existence of Student Accessibility Resources (SAR).
The College has designated SAR as the place where documentation regarding a student's disability is on file and where appropriate accommodations are determined. Reasonable accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis because the functional limitations of each individual and the specific demands of each course may vary. In some cases, SAR may consult with a faculty member to determine the essential standards of a course or program of study in order to determine what constitutes an appropriate accommodation.
