SAMPLE SYLLABUS ANNOUCEMENTS
It is suggested that instructors include a statement about how to obtain academic accommodations directly on their syllabi. For example:
If you are a student with a disability and you think you may require accommodations, please register with the campus office of Disability Services for Students (DSS), located in Salazar Hall - Room 1049, Phone: (707) 664-2677, TTY/TDD: (707) 664-2958.
DSS will provide you with written confirmation of your verified disability and authorize recommended accommodations. This authorization must be presented to the instructor before any accommodations can be made.
Emergency Evacuation - Additional Syllabus Announcement
It is also suggested that instructors include a statement on their syllabi pertaining to emergency evacuation for students with disabilities. For example:
If you are a student with a disability and you think you may require assistance evacuating a building in the event of a disaster, you should inform your instructor about the type of assistance you may require. You and your instructor should discuss your specific needs and the type of precautions that should be made in advance of such an event (i.e. assigning a buddy to guide you down the stairway).
We encourage you to take advantage of these preventative measures as soon as possible and contact the Disability Services for Students office if other classroom accommodations are needed.
