Faculty Responsibilities

  • The accommodation process is meant to be collaborative among the student, faculty, and DSS.  Please contact DSS as soon as possible to discuss any concerns about the student’s recommended accommodations. 

  • Provide proctor instructions either by email response to the accommodation email or with each exam.

  • Notify DSS immediately if you feel the accommodation may have a substantial impact that fundamentally alters the course or learning objectives.

  • Suggest reasonable alternative options to the recommended accommodation when appropriate.

  • Maintain confidentiality of the student’s disability status and their accommodations. Please Note: students are not required to disclose specific details of their disability. 

  • Include a statement regarding DSS in your class syllabus (UW Regulation 6-809).

  • Review student medical statements for students experiencing temporary conditions or conditions that do not meet DSS eligibility requirements (UW Regulation 6-713).

Concerns for students not necessarily related to their disability accommodations may be directed to UWYO Cares.  When making a report, please specify if the concern is regarding academics, or a safety/well-being concern.
