For Faculty & Staff

Accommodations are provided to students who are identified with Accessibility Resources and Service by providing documentation that supports the need for such so they may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of university life. The Provost informs (via campus email) faculty and staff that accommodations should not be provided by faculty or staff unless they have received a request for support and assistance from ARS staff.

If a student discloses a disability to you and you have not received notification from ARS, please refer the student to ARS.

If you believe that an accommodation is not reasonable, please contact ARS before denying an accommodation to a student.  Similarly, if, at any time, you believe that further accommodations would be appropriate or if you have questions about any accommodation, you are encouraged to discuss your concerns with an ARS staff member.

ARS is always happy to chat informally or provide more formal input to campus partners, offices, departments and individual staff members around accommodations, resources and services. In addition, ARS is able to contribute to meetings, conferences and class sessions on a range of topics including assistive technologies, universal design, accessible web-design and the legal framework governing provision for students with disabilities.
