What Faculty Need to Know about Disability Services and Their Role in the Interactive Process

September 18, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This workshop has been cancelled due to low-enrollment. If you are interested in the topic, please register for the upcoming session on Friday, September 22 from 12-1pm



Enhance your expertise in supporting students with disabilities and implementing their classroom accommodations by joining this workshop with VTSU’s disability services staff. Faculty play a pivotal role in the collaborative process for providing accommodations, and this workshop explains the process in depth, and places a spotlight on the dynamic “interactive process”. You’ll gain a better understanding for how students qualify for disability services, how “flexibility” accommodations may or may not work with your course, and how faculty involvement in this process can improve accessibility and inclusivity for students with disabilities and all students.    

By attending this workshop you will: 

  • *Gain insight into the disability accommodation process 
  • *Explore the responsibilities professors have in implementing accommodations 
  • *Understand your rights and responsibilities within the interactive process
  • *Explore accessibility and inclusivity ideas that will benefit all of your students 

Presented By: Gerry Volpe (Director of Disability Services) and Pam Billings (Coordinator of Disability Services)
