Accommodation Procedures for Faculty

The provision of academic accommodations is a responsibility that needs to be shared by all members of the University community and requires the active participation of all involved, especially faculty members.

Student Disability Services (SDS) needs to be involved in all accommodation decisions in order to standardize the process and help ensure the University and its constituents remain in compliance with legal mandates.  SDS welcomes the opportunity to provide consultation regarding disability matters. Please contact us at JH 136 or at 317-940-9308 for assistance.

Butler University is committed to treating all individuals within the university, including those with disabilities, in a fair and equitable manner. Furthermore, it is the policy and practice of the university to comply with the American with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Under these laws, no otherwise qualified individual with a disability will be denied access to or participation in services, programs, and activities at Butler University.

All faculty need to include an SDS statement on all course syllabi. The statement needs to be included exactly as written. Please see Syllabus Statement for specific wording.
