This page also contains the standardized statement for the Mental/Physical Wellness Resources, which should be both linked and copied into the syllabus in its entirety.

Accessibility Accommodation Statement

Eastern Kentucky University strives to make all learning experiences as accessible as possible. Students registered with the Center for Student Accessibility (CSA) should request accommodation letters from the CSA office. The Center for Student Accessibility will email your academic adjustment letter to you, or you may stop by the office for a hard copy. You will provide your letter to the course instructor(s) immediately. We strongly recommend that you discuss the accommodations needed with your instructor(s). Students who need an accommodation for a documented medical, mental health, or learning difference may register online at accessibility.eku.edu/applying-services. If you have questions, you may email the CSA office at accessibility@eku.edu or telephone at (859) 622-2933. The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) does not consider pregnancy a disability.‚Äč Students needing accommodations due to pregnancy should contact John Dixon, Executive Director of Human Resources and Institutional Equity, at john.dixon@eku.edu or contact the Office of Institutional Equity at 859-622-8020.
