CI recognizes that accessibility is a shared responsibility of all campus community members. Our common goal with faculty and staff is to provide equitable access to all educational programs as well as CI events and activities. Disability Resource Programs (DRP) works collaboratively with faculty and staff to ensure an accessible and inclusive educational experience for students with disabilities.
DRP provides the following services to faculty and staff:
- Orientation of services
- Individual consultation (classroom accessibility, program and event accommodations, student concerns, Americans with Disabilities Act and University compliance)
- Test proctoring/alternative test-site (DRP students only)
- Departmental trainings
- Campus and CSU-wide faculty resources
More information for CI faculty and staff may be found in the DRP Handbook (PDF, 664KB).
