Faculty Responsibilities

Faculty/staff have the responsibility to comply with the provision of authorized reasonable accommodations in a reasonable and timely manner. Faculty/staff should meet individually with the student to discuss the details.
If a student requests accommodations for a disability, but does not provide the supporting documentation in the form of a letter of accommodation, please refer the student to ODS. If an accommodation request is something you would feel comfortable providing for any student (for example, closing the door to reduce distractions or providing seating near a window for natural light), the accommodation may be provided without consulting with ODS. However, it is advisable to refer any accommodation request that is questionable to ODS.
Please consult an academic counselor in ODS if you have any questions regarding the proper way to facilitate a particular accommodation.
