Sample Syllabus Statement

Instructors are encouraged to include a statement in their syllabus inviting students with disabilities to contact the Disability Specialist to arrange for accommodations. This statement is critical because it normalizes the accommodations process and creates a positive learning environment for students with disabilities. It also reminds the students who need accommodations to contact the Disability Specialist with questions.

This is an example of a statement that could be used or adapted for your syllabi:

Any student who feels that she or he may need an accommodations based on the impact of a disability should contact the Disability Specialist at 330-684-8923. The office is located in the Smucker Learning Center in B-112
