Accommodating or Pandering: A Frank Discussion with Student Disability Services -Register Now


Contributed by Wade Pickren

Monday, October 22, 2012
4.00 - 5.00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett Center 316

Do accommodations for students with disabilities give an unfair advantage in the classroom? Do such accommodations lower academic standards? Are we doing students a disfavor by offering what might not be available when they go out into the “real world?” At what point do accommodations cross the line and become unreasonable?

This session is intended to be a frank and open dialogue among faculty members and Student Disability Services staff members Linda Uhll, Robin Dubovi, and Jean Celeste-Astorina.

Light refreshments provided.

Registration is encouraged, but not necessary.
