Support Statements for Course Syllabuses
Please consider including the following brief statements in your course syllabuses:
"According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (as amended, 2008), each student with a disability has the right to request services from UNH to accommodate his/her disability. If you are a student with a documented disability or believe you may have a disability that requires accommodations, please contact Disability Services for Students (DSS) at 201 Smith Hall. Please inform your instructor of your DSS documented disability as soon as possible to ensure timely implementation of appropriate accommodations. Faculty have an obligation to respond when they receive official notice of a disability from DSS but are under no obligation to provide retroactive accommodations. For more information refer to www.unh.edu/disabilityservices or contact DSS at 603-862-2607, 7-1-1 (Relay NH) or email@example.com.
Emotional or Mental Health Distress
Your academic success in this course is very important to me. If, during the semester, you find emotional or mental health issues are affecting that success, please contact the University’s Counseling Center (3rd fl, Smith Hall; 603 862-2090/TTY: 7-1-1) which provides counseling appointments and other mental health services.
