Resources for Faculty
Dear Faculty Members:
Welcome to Accessibility Resources! As a CC faculty member, you play a very important role in providing access for students with disabilities. We hope that the “Faculty Resources” section of our website, which includes general guidelines and information on specific accommodations, will assist you in your work with students. We would appreciate any feedback or suggestions you may have for improving the content—and for sharing creative and practical ideas regarding the provision of academic accommodations.
Last year, 17% of CC's students were registered with Accessibility Resources. These were students who had documented disabilities and were approved for accommodations. We also assisted many students with temporary injuries and illnesses, such as concussions and recovery from surgery, and we met with students who inquired about support but either didn't have a disability or didn't complete the registration process. In all, we connected with approximately 24% of enrolled students.
We work with students on an individual basis to determine how CC can best support their learning, living, and co-curricular experiences, but we can't do this without the support of others on campus, including faculty. Students regularly tell us how professors are so helpful and supportive—and that this makes such a difference in their academic life at Colorado College!
Sara Rotunno, Assistant Director of Accessibility Resources, and I both value a collaborative approach in our work with faculty and students, and we encourage you to contact us at any time if we can be of assistance. We sincerely appreciate the key role you play in supporting students with disabilities and look forward to continuing our partnership with you.
