In an effort to promote Faculty awareness of disability related
issues and appropriate student support, Student Disability Services
periodically posts links to pertinent videos, articles, stories,
and general information pages.
We hope to grow this page to serve as a resource library for
faculty and staff. So if you have or know of any information,
sites or other resources concerning disability in higher
education that you feel should be shared with other Faculty, please
contact Rob Hartman by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Disability Services is available to provide
individualized assistance, support, and consultation to faculty in
their work with students with disabilities. Should you
encounter a student whose request for an accommodation seems
unreasonable or if you desire additional information, please
contact our office. The Office of Student Disability Services
serves students only. Students identify themselves
to the Office of Student Disability Services and request assistance
in making academic adjustments to ensure an equitable opportunity
in the academic setting while at Butler University. While office
staff sometimes need to serve as advocates for students with
disabilities, students are encouraged and empowered to become
advocates for themselves. The staff will also assist faculty and
other members of the University community in becoming familiar with
the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
and the Americans with Disabilities act.
Specific services provided vary with the nature of the student's
disability, but may include: extended time on examinations, note
takers, readers, relocation of classrooms to an accessible site,
alternative testing arrangements.
