Information for Faculty

ADA Syllabus Statement

USU Eastern faculty members are encouraged to include a statement to inform students of the availability of reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities. This relieves faculty of the responsibility of obtaining documentation, determining if the request is appropriate, and storing medical information in accordance with Federal regulations. This notification process offers protection for faculty members and the University in the event that a student claims that their right to accommodation has been denied.

The following statement is suggested:

Classroom Accommodation For Students With Disabilities
If a student has a disability that qualifies under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and requires reasonable accommodation, he/she should contact the Academic Access Center (AAC) for information on appropriate policies and procedures. Disabilities covered by ADA may include learning, sensory, emotional, physical, or medical impairments. Students may contact the AAC if they are not certain whether a condition qualifies. Regional campus students may contact the DRC located in Room 1010 of the University Inn, 435-797-2444 (voice), 435-797-0740 (TTY) or toll free at 800-259-2966. USU Eastern students may contact the AAC located in room 223 of the JLSC, 435-613-5337. Please contact the AAC as early in the semester as possible.
