Recommended Syllabus Statement

Eastman faculty are strongly encouraged to include an accommodation statement in their syllabi. Accommodation must be made even in the event that this statement does not appear or there is no syllabus. Here is an example of an Eastman specific statement: 

Our school is committed to fostering a welcoming, encouraging, and empowering environment for students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations for this class will be implemented in collaboration with the Eastman Access Coordinator. Students with disabilities are responsible for contacting the Access Coordinator as soon as possible. To schedule a meeting with the access coordinator, call 585.274.1165, or email
