Accommodations and Disability Access
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged Dominican University to look for creative and innovative ways to come together in ever-changing learning environments. Accommodations and Disability Access (ADA) remains committed to supporting students, faculty and staff in ensuring access and accommodation needs are met. Here is how we can help:
Please connect with ADA if your accommodation needs have changed due to the pandemic. We will work with you to help you navigate the documentation process and assist you with updating your accommodations.
Please connect with ADA if you would like additional guidance or support in implementing students’ accommodations in virtual, hybrid or face-to-face classroom settings, or if you have questions about whether a particular accommodation can be met, given the learning objectives and structure of your course.
Please connect with ADA if you are exploring new ways of promoting or hosting campus and community-sponsored events and have accessibility-related questions about structure or presentation.
We are looking forward to working with you and are here to help! We can be reached at email@example.com.
