Accommodating or Pandering: A Frank Discussion with Student Disability Services -Register Now Comment from henderso on 10/22/2012
While I support the work of the Office to raise consciousness and to open useful dialogues, I have to say the name of the event is a little disconcerting. The word "pandering" is extremely problematic and, frankly, seems to me to "pander" to those who would view accommodations as a privilege or gift. As the good folks who work without students will, no doubt, remind us, such accommodations are legal rights (when appropriately documented), and thousands of people worked to make Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Acts realities.
