Welcome Back!

We are glad to see you all here for the beginning of the new academic year. The staff of SAS has had a busy summer preparing for your return and is excited to welcome our new students. We are also excited to introduce a new Accessibility Coordinator, Chris Linscott. With the introduction of a third coordinator some students will be reassigned to work with Chris. The student caseload will now be divided as follows:

  • Christina Jenkins – last names beginning A-G
  • Chris Linscott – last names beginning H-O
  • Alex Ecklund – last names beginning P-Z

In addition to staff updates, we would like to share a few reminders and opportunities to get the semester off to a smooth start:

  • Request Letters of Notification for professors by completing the semester request in ACCOMMODATE.
  • Requests for note takers or books in alternate format can be completed using the survey links in the "Important Links" box on this page.
  • Need to schedule exams through SAS? Visit the forms section of our website or stop by the office to get the Exam Scheduling Form. Be sure you return it to us at least a week before your first exam.
  • Borrowing a LiveScribe Pen? Stop by the front desk in 348 Baker to sign it out M-F, 8am-5pm.

Lastly, we would like to share a request for research participants for an Ohio University graduate student:

  • This study is being conducted to explore college students with physical disabilities and view their experiences of accessibility on campus. Moreover this study seeks to understand how students view accessibility and the impact of academic performance. For more information, contact Simone Hicks at 334-275-1554 or sh617515@ohio.edu. Thank you for your consideration to participate in study.

As always, feel free to contact your Accessibility Coordinator to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your accommodations or services or stop by the office if you need help with any of these processes.

Good luck this semester!
