Sample Syllabus Statement
The Office of Disability Services encourages faculty to include information regarding accommodations and our office on the course syllabus. Additionally, ODS recommends reviewing this information from the syllabus at the beginning of class. This may increase a student’s comfort with providing notification and awareness of the process as well as help to assure you receive timely notification for accommodation requests.
Here is one sample statement:
“Any student who feels s/he may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability should contact me privately to discuss your specific needs and provide written documentation from the Office of Disability Services. If you are not yet registered as a student with a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services at 740-593-2620 or visit the office in 348 Baker University Center.”
