Studies show that the relationship between a student with a disability and their professor influences their academic success in a particular course, and therefore, positively or negatively affects that student’s chance for success in their pursuit of higher education.
You are encouraged to include a statement on your course outline, such as the one below, welcoming students with disabilities or accommodation needs and alerting them to our services. Feel free to invite them to discuss their needs with you in person or by email.
