Faculty Information :
To Faculty and Staff
Disability Support Services currently serves over 500 students with a wide range of disabilities including learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, mobility impairments, chronic health conditions, sensory impairments, and psychological disabilities. This office is responsible for ensuring that students with documented disabilities receive appropriate academic accommodations and support from the University in compliance with state and federal laws.
Faculty and staff have always demonstrated a strong commitment to students with disabilities. Each year during “K-State for All” Disability Awareness Week, a faculty member and a staff member are honored with the PAAC (Promoting An Accessible Campus) Award. Past honorees include Heather Reed, Office of Student Life, Sally Bailey, Instructor in the Department of Theater, Mary Ellen Barkley, Career and Employment Services, and Sharon Morcos, Instructor in the Department of Nutrition.
If you find you have questions about students with disabilities and the university’s efforts to provide academic accommodations this office would be glad to make arrangements to provide an in-service for your office or department. Please do not hesitate to call to set up a day and time. In the past, we have been invited to present at staff meetings or brown bag luncheons, if that should meet your need.
Thank you for your continuing support for students with disabilities.
