Sample Syllabus Accessibility Statement
Faculty Guide: Syllabus Statement
All faculty and instructors are strongly encouraged to include a statement in their course syllabus informing students of the university's accommodation process and inviting students with disabilities to discuss making accommodation arrangements in a confidential environment. The following syllabus statement can be used or adapted for your course syllabi to create a collaborative vehicle for providing legally-mandated accommodations and help build a positive and welcoming environment for students with disabilities.
Access and Accommodations:
Your experience in this class is important to me. University of Arkansas Academic Policy Series 1520.10 requires that students with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodations to ensure their equal access to course content. If you have already established accommodations with the Center for Educational Access (CEA), please request your accommodations letter early in the semester and contact me privately, so that we have adequate time to arrange your approved academic accommodations.
If you have not yet established services through CEA, but have a documented disability and require accommodations (conditions include but not limited to: mental health, attention-related, learning, vision, hearing, physical, health or temporary impacts), contact CEA directly to set up an Access Plan. CEA facilitates the interactive process that establishes reasonable accommodations. For more information on CEA registration procedures contact 479–575–3104, email@example.com or visit cea.uark.edu.
If you have any questions, at any time, about working with a student with a disability, please contact the CEA by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 479-575-3104. We welcome the opportunity to assist and work collaboratively with faculty and staff!
