AR Faculty Survey
Accessibility Resources and the Center for Education Innovation have designed a short survey to gather information about how we can support faculty by learning their views on accessibility in the classroom. You can help by taking just 10 minutes or so to participate in our online survey .
Please encourage colleagues and teaching assistants to participate as well. Results will be shared with the university community during fall 2015 and will guide us in improving outreach, support, and programming for you.
2014-2015 Scholarship Awards
Scholarship Awards for the 2014-2015 School Year are still in progress. Awardees will be notified as soon as the process is complete. Accessibility Resources cannot give a specific date or time on when funds will be disbursed to students.
Note Takers Needed for Students with Disabilities
If your professor makes an announcement that a note taker is needed in one of your courses and you would like to volunteer, please stop by or contact the office to learn more. Student note takers who are eligible receive a stipend of $25 per credit hour at the end of the semester, usually $75. Note takers are required to make copies of their notes to share with a student with a disability. Accessibility Resources coordinates the photocopying and/or scanning of the notes at no cost to the note taker.
