Accessibility Resources For Faculty

#

Working together, we can put students first and ensure they all have the best opportunity for success. Our office provides accommodations to UC students. If you are a faculty member seeking accommodations for yourself, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Special Needs Policy

Instructors have asked for information they can include on their syllabus to alert students to our services. Here is a sample statement:

Accessibility Resources:

If you have a disability (e.g., visual impairment, hearing impairment, physical impairment, communication disorder, and/or specific learning disability, etc.) which may influence your performance in this course, you must meet with the Accessibility Resources Office to arrange for reasonable accommodations to ensure an equitable opportunity to meet all the requirements of this course. If you require accommodations due to disability, please contact Accessibility Resources at 513-792-8625.

Campus Location:

UC, Blue Ash 9555 Plainfield Rd., Muntz Hall, Room 112L. You will be provided an Accommodation Form indicating your accommodation needs for the quarter. Please present this form to me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to ensure your accommodation needs are discussed, agreed upon, and provided.

Feel free to browse our site to learn what is expected of students registered with our office, to find out about what accommodations you might see in your classroom, or to learn more about our office and staff. If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 513-792-8625. We look forward to working with you.
