Syllabus Statement

The Disability Resource Center recommends that all University instructors use the following statement on their course syllabi to inform students of the instructor’s willingness to provide reasonable accommodations:

Disability Accommodations

Instructor Training & Resources

As a University of Minnesota instructor, do you sometimes struggle to figure out how to best serve students with disabilities in your courses? Do you sometimes wonder what is "required" and whether you have to do everything that a student asks you to do?

Examples of Accommodations

While the University strives to incorporate Best Practices or Universal Design to eliminate the need for many accommodations, it does not eliminate the need for all of them. 

Electronic Accommodation Letter

After registering with the Disability Resource Center your access consultant will email a PDF version of your accommodation letter to you.  It is your option to email the letter to your instructors or provide them with a printed copy.  While we encourage you to give your letter to all of your instructors, there may be classes in which you do not wish to use your accommodations. Please understand accommodations are not retroactive.  Your letter becomes effective on the date your instructor receives it.   

Disability Related Scholarships

In addition to other forms of financial aid, students with disabilities may qualify for additional scholarship funding. Many are provided through the Disability Resource Center and others are offered by outside advocacy organizations.
