Why should I become involved?

There are many people with disabilities who want a chance to be full participants in life. The faculty and staff of Southeastern have a major role in students' lives, and it is very important that we meet the needs of all our students. Most of us have had limited contact with people with disabilities, and we are sometimes unsure of how to respond. By becoming involved and informed, our students will have a greater chance to reach their full potential.

How should I be involved?

Please remember that it is not helpful to the students of the university for you to accommodate a student outside of the process. SOSU has exemplary policies, as cited by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). OCR has used our policies as models for other universities to follow. Acting outside of the policies can create situations where unnecessary accommodations become necessary. The best way to assist students with accommodations is to follow our written policies.
