Update to ARC Practice and Policy on Accommodations

Monday September 25, 3:00 – 4:00 pm Central/4:00 – 5:00 pm Eastern 

Facilitators: Jordan Beck, Elizabeth Polzin, and Erin Laverick 

Recent changes to ADA law have impacted the ways in which CUWAA serves students through accessibility services. The Faculty Senate created an ARC Ad Hoc Committee dedicated to learning more about how these changes impact accommodations and faculty work. During this session, we will discuss the changes to ADA law, how the changes impact the accommodation process, and provide a summary from the Faculty Ad Hoc Committee. Time will be allocated for faculty questions, comments, and suggestions for further learning during the session.
