The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD), in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences and the professional schools, assists faculty and staff in meeting the accommodation needs of students with disabilities. As the number of students registered with the OSWD continues to grow, faculty are asked to plan ahead now to meet UP’s shared responsibilities to ensure equal access for all.
Faculty are reminded that it is their responsibility to proctor exam accommodations for extended time and/or alternative (distraction-reduced) settings. Now is a great time to extend a general invitation to each of your classes for students to discuss their accommodation needs privately with you. Anticipating exam proctoring needs now, including final exams, allows the most effective use of University space and resources. Feel free to set up a faculty proctoring cooperative within your department or school. Be creative and work collaboratively to share proctoring resources. An unmonitored exam room (with online video stream), Franz 123, is set up to meet faculty space needs for proctoring exams.
Thank you for your partnership in creating equal access for every member of our community. For exam proctoring questions or to reserve individual exam seats in FR 123, faculty should contact their school or departmental administrative assistants. For general accommodation questions, contact Melanie Gangle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
