Resources for Faculty

March 2015

Dear Faculty Members:

This has been a year of many changes for Accessibility Resources, including our new name, our new location in Armstrong 211, and, most exciting, the hire of our new assistant director, Sara Rotunno.

Prior to joining our staff on March 16, Sara served as the assistant director of Residential Life at CC. She brings a wealth of experience in student development, crisis management, and social justice programming to the position—and a tremendous passion for working with students. Sara will play a key role in supporting students’ academic experiences through the coordination of accommodations and support services, including management of assistive technologies. Please join me in welcoming Sara to Accessibility Resources!

As you know, faculty also play a critical role in supporting students with disabilities, from listening and understanding to providing classroom accommodations. In doing this, you support the college’s dedication to diversity, as well Accessibility Resources’ new mission:

The mission of Accessibility Resources is to collaborate with the Colorado College community to ensure that all aspects of campus life are accessible, equitable, and inclusive for people who experience disabilities.

Congruent with this new mission statement, and to assist you in your work with students, we've revised our web resources for faculty (please click links in the sidebar to access "Guidelines for Faculty" and "Accommodations"). We would appreciate any feedback or suggestions you may have for improving the content—or for sharing creative and practical solutions to the provision of academic accommodations.

Both Sara and I value and celebrate a collaborative approach in our work with students, and we encourage you to contact us at any time if we can be of assistance. We will be delighted to answer questions, address concerns, or talk about ideas you may have for enhancing the services we offer to students.

We sincerely appreciate the core role you play and all that you do for students with disabilities. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you on behalf of our students.

Kind regards,

Jan Edwards
Director, Accessibility Resources
