Syllabus Statement

The Undergraduate Course Syllabus Policy requires that syllabi contain a statement about the availability of reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.  Below is the recommended statement.  Please copy it directly for your syllabus.

Accessibility and Accommodations:

It is the University’s goal that learning experiences be as accessible as possible.  If you anticipate or experience physical or academic barriers based on disability or pregnancy, please let me know immediately so that we can discuss options.  You are also welcome to contact Disability Resources (520-621-3268) to establish reasonable accommodations.

Please be aware that the accessible table and chairs in this room should remain available for students who find that standard classroom seating is not usable.

Instructors are encouraged to provide appropriate individual flexibility to all students. When disability-related accommodations are requested, instructors should consult with DRC staff to identify strategies or accommodations to provide access.

If a student is registered with the DRC and has requested attendance flexibility as a reasonable accommodation, an Access Consultant will be in touch with instructors as needed/appropriate to discuss the request. Instructors should not request medical documentation from students, other than documentation related to conditions that are not considered disabilities such as colds or flus, on their syllabi or otherwise. Disability-related medical documentation, if necessary, should only be reviewed and maintained by DRC and Campus Health. Since many health conditions can be considered disabilities, it is generally best to err on the side of not requesting documentation.
