Welcome to the Faculty Page
According to federal law, faculty must provide a student registered with DSS, who provides a letter specifying accommodations, those accommodations. They may not question whether the disability exists when DSS has authorized accommodations nor ask to examine the student's documentation. Faculty are encouraged to discuss with the DSS professional staff how most effectively to provide accommodations.
Important Message to All Faculty
The University has given the DSS department the following message to relay to all instructors from every department:
“As a reminder, if you have students registered with the DSS office with testing accommodations such as; Extended Test Time (ET), Distraction Reduced Environment (DRE), Computer (WORD), Scribe, Reader, etc. you will need to work with your department to make any necessary alternate arrangements. DSS is ONLY able to provide limited space for those students requiring Assistive Technology. Instructors must provide accommodations to students who are registered with the DSS office, who have requested accommodation letters, and developed a working agreement on how those accommodations well be met.”
