Faculty/Staff

COVID-19 and Modifications

During the COVID-19 pandemic and remote instruction, students with disabilities need to continue to receive modifications. Students registered with Disability Services will provide their verification letter to instructors by email. The modifications remain in effect. However, the way to implement modifications may need to be adjusted for remote instruction.  

To demonstrate faculty's commitment to accessibility, we recommend the following key points: 

Communication

  • Be clear, concise, and concrete to make information easy to understand.

Accessibility in Course Content 

Resources

Electronic Information Technology Access Resources

Creating Accessible Documents

UM OCR Converter

Faculty & Staff: Important role for accessibility

Faculty and staff play an important role in creating and maintaining an accessible learning environment, while at the same time maintaining academic standards. Students with disabilities, faculty, and Disability Services for Students have rights and responsibilities related to reasonable modifications. Collaborative efforts among these three parties ensure equal access.

Disability Services is a resource for UM faculty members, departments, and schools. We are available for consultations on accessibility in the curriculum and on teaching and interacting with students with disabilities. We can meet individually, or provide a presentation to a class, departmental meeting, or a larger group. To request a consultation, please contact our office by email at dss@umontana.edu
