Syllabus Statement

The Office for Students with Disabilities recommends that all faculty members use the following statement on their course syllabi to inform students with disabilities of the faculty member’s willingness to provide reasonable accommodations:

Gallaudet University is committed to providing all students equal access to learning opportunities.  The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD) is the campus unit that works with students who have disabilities to provide and/or arrange reasonable accommodations.  Students registered with OSWD, who have a letter requesting accommodations, are encouraged to contact the professor early in the semester.  Students who have, or think they may have, a disability (e.g. psychiatric, attention, learning, vision, physical, or systemic), are invited to contact OSWD for a confidential discussion at (202) 651-5256 (V/TTY) or at oswd@gallaudet.edu. OSWD is located in the Student Academic Center, room 1220.
