Resources for Faculty and Staff

Western Carolina University is committed to providing equal educational opportunities for students with disabilities.  We comply with legal mandates to provide accommodations and access to facilities, programs, and services.  As a faculty member, you play a vital role in ensuring that students with disabilities receive accurate information about procedures for requesting services and accommodations.  Thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with basic information about Disability Services and other resources on campus that may assist you and your students.

Disability Services is dedicated to providing necessary accommodations for students with disabilities to have the opportunity to meet the needs required for their courses.  These accommodations in no way give an advantage to students or compromises the integrity of courses.

Faculty members should be familiar with typical accommodations and the roles and responsibilities of the student, Disability Services, and the faculty member.  All disability related correspondence with or about a student with a disability is confidential. Please continue to browse our website for further information, and always feel free to contact me for additional information, resources, or assistance.
