DU Faculty and Staff
DSP is available to help instructors and staff provide appropriate accommodations for students in the classroom, in campus housing, and at events.
There may be times, however, when you may choose to grant modifications to a student directly without the involvement of DSP. For example: if a student is temporarily ill or injured and needs to have an extension on a test or a paper, the instructor and student are encouraged to negotiate the terms of the extension.
We encourage instructors to add a statement to their syllabi telling students how to request accommodations through DSP.
Need more information? DSP staff is available for presentations to your department, or even class, on disability and accommodations. Contact Michele McCandless, DSP Director, to schedule a presentation.
