What You Need to Know as Faculty

Please note that we continue to add to this page; please check back for updated resources or contact Disability Resources at 641-269-3089 for support.

Disability Resources strives to assist faculty in creating learning environments that are inclusive of students of all abilities.  Using universal design principals, we seek to remove as many barriers as possible and then make individual accommodations when needed.  We coordinate accommodations and support for Grinnellians with disabilities such as learning, psychiatric, physical, or sensory disabilities, and we partner with the student's faculty whenever possible. Do not hesitate to call on us with questions or for assistance. 

We encourage you to learn about disabilities, universal design, and disability resources at Grinnell, starting with Disability Resources for Students.
