Syllabus Statement:

Western Oregon University values diversity and inclusion; we are committed to fostering full participation for all students. Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty, and the Disability Services’ office.  Please notify me if there are aspects of the instruction or design of this course that result in disability-related barriers to your participation. If you would like to apply for disability related accommodations please contact the Office of Disability Services at: 503-838-8250, Academic Programs Services Center (APSC) 405,

Additional statement regarding technology use in the classroom:

Electronic devices are not allowed in class unless I have received notification from Disability Services regarding an approved academic accommodation for a student.

If you are planning to show a video either during a class meeting or an event, please check that proper captions are available beforehand. If the captions are not present or not sufficient, please submit the Request Form or email the details of your request to at least one week in advance.
