Resources for Faculty
Welcome to Accessibility Resources! As a CC faculty member, you play a very important role in promoting 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—or for sharing creative and practical solutions to the provision of academic accommodations.
Last year, over 16% of CC’s students were connected with Accessibility Resources. This number includes students with a variety of disabilities, including, but not limited to, learning disabilities, ADHD, psychological disorders, chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, brain injuries, and sensory disabilities related to vision and hearing. It also includes students with temporary injuries and illnesses, such as concussions and recovery from surgery.
We work with students on an individual basis to plan support services, including reasonable accommodations that facilitate access to their learning, living, and co-curricular experiences. Students are encouraged to work closely with both professors and the Accessibility Resources staff to ensure that approved classroom accommodations are in place.
Sara Rotunno, assistant director of Accessibility Resources, and I both value and celebrate 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.
