Faculty and Staff
Part of the Disability Services Office's mission is to assist staff and faculty in the process of accommodating students with disabilities.This page has been created to assist you in providing an equitable, accessible, and enriching classroom experience for the students with disabilities you may teach.
Know the rights and responsibilities of IVCC as well as those of the students you may work with.
Understand how the accommodation process works and how you can facilitate it.
Faculty are an indispensable tool for guiding students who may need accommodations to our office. One of the most effective ways of doing that is by simply having a statement on your syllabi that informs students of our existence. You'll find a variety of sample statements to choose from.
