Faculty Responsibilities

Once a Letter of Accommodation has been received

Faculty/Staff have the responsibility to comply with the provision of authorized reasonable accommodations in a sensible and timely manner. Faculty/Staff members should meet individually with the student to discuss the details.

If a Letter of Accommodation has not been received

If a student requests accommodations for a disability, but does not provide the supporting documentation in the form of a letter of accommodation, please refer the student to Student Disability Services. If an accommodation request is something that you would feel comfortable providing for any student (for example, closing the door to reduce distractions or providing seating near a window for natural light) the accommodation may be provided without consulting with Student Disability Services. However, it is advisable to refer any accommodation request that is questionable to Student Disability Services.

When the appropriateness of the accommodation is in question

Please consult Student Disability Services at (806) 743-1926 if you have any questions regarding the appropriateness of or the proper way to facilitate a particular accommodation. 

Course Accessibility Rubric

We use this rubric to track departmental data regarding our campuses' course offerings and the extent to which we are complying with federally mandated ADA accessibility guidelines. To this end, the data we gather from this rubric will not be used to single out individual classes or instructors. Its primary objective is to help the Student Disability Services to provide you with the resources, training, and tools you need to best meet your course design needs.
