ADA Syllabus Statement

Faculty members can help normalize the accommodation process by making an announcement during the first class meeting or by voluntarily including an Americans with Disabilities (ADA) statement on their class syllabus inviting students with disabilities to meet with the faculty member during office hours to discuss accommodation needs. The Student Accessibility Services has developed the following syllabus statement for your use:

The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Fair Housing Act, and other applicable federal and state laws and regulations that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. To request accommodations, it is the policy of the University for students with disabilities to register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). UNI faculty are not obligated to provide accommodations for students with disabilities without proper notification from SAS and the student. Students may initiate the accommodation process at any time. However, accommodations are not retroactive, and the registration process takes time. Therefore, SAS staff always recommends that students initiate the process as soon as possible rather than wait for academic and social-emotional responsibilities to become overly stressful and/or overwhelming. Please contact SAS, located at ITTC 007, for more information either at (319) 273-2677 or
