5.1. OSWD Statement on Syllabi

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 prior to the start of the semester. Students who have, or think they may have, a disability such as a psychological disorder, an attention deficit disorder, a learning disability, low vision loss, are deaf-blind, have a physical disability, or a chronic disability, are invited to contact OSWD for confidential guidance and consultation. OSWD is located in the Student Academic Center, room 1220. Students may contact OSWD several ways:

● (202) 651-5256 [Voice]
● (202) 651-5887 [FAX]
● (202) 250-2059 [VP]
