Faculty Handbook

This Faculty/Instructor Handbook (“Handbook”) is offered as a source of information and guidance with respect to the provision of reasonable accommodations for students with qualifying disabilities who are enrolled in your course(s).  However, this Handbook is not intended as a comprehensive resource.  Due to the heterogeneous nature of disability, and the diversity of courses offered at the University, it is not possible to anticipate and address every question or concern that may arise.  Instead, this handbook is designed to orient the reader to the fundamentals of the accommodation process and offer answers to frequently asked questions.  Also, this handbook is a work in progress, and updated versions will be published as our work adapts and grows along with the campus.  If you have questions or concerns not addressed in the pages that follow, please call Disability Services (413-545-0892) and we will be happy to assist you.
