Faculty and TAs should maintain a welcoming environment that will encourage students with disabilities to meet with you. It is highly recommended that you include this statement into your course website, syllabus, and class announcements early in the term.
"UC Santa Cruz is committed to creating an academic environment that supports its diverse student body. If you are a student with a disability who requires accommodations to achieve equal access in this course, please submit your Accommodation Authorization Letter from the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to me privately during my office hours or by appointment, preferably within the first two weeks of the quarter. At this time, I would also like us to discuss ways we can ensure your full participation in the course. I encourage all students who may benefit from learning more about DRC services to contact DRC by phone at 831-459-2089 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org."
