Faculty Guide for Supporting Full Access for All Students

 

Faculty Guide for Supporting Full Access for All Students (PDF)

It is strongly recommended that faculty let students know that they are willing to set up a time to meet with student(s) to:

  1. Make certain the student is aware of services available and is registered through the Library & Learning Support Specialist which includes responsibility for overall coordination of services for students with disabilities
  2. Ask the student what course accommodations the student(s) need in terms of fulfilling course requirements
  3. Ask the student if he or she would like you to announce that a note-taker is needed if pertinent.
  4. Ask the student if a study group would help; then, announce that study groups would be beneficial to students
  5. If it becomes apparent the student needs a tutor, help identify upper level or graduate students in the pertinent area of study. Contact Peter Ploegman, NLU’s Library & Learning Support Specialist, for further information, questions, or assistance.

Generally, a student is responsible for:

  • Registering with the Learning Support Specialist, who is responsible for overall coordination of services for students with disabilities
  • Obtaining special equipment such as FM amplification systems with the assistance of the Learning Support Specialist
  • Initiating contact with readers or tutors in the pertinent area or through the assistance of the Learning Support Specialist
  • Arranging with faculty to have an exam taken in an alternate room or proctored by someone at he Learning Support Department
  • Reporting to Learning Support Specialist if approved accommodations are not being implemented consistently
