Purdue recognizes inclusion and access as a University-wide responsibility. As such, active participation by faculty, students and DRC staff is key to creating accessible experiences.
Faculty who believe an accommodation fundamentally alters their class should contact the DRC. "Reasonableness" and "fundamental alteration" are concepts determined by DRC staff in conjunction with faculty and instructors. Considerations include a course's design, delivery and its intersection with students.
Below are the links to the procedures and forms:
- Requesting and Implementing Curricular Accommodations
- Requesting and Implementing Student Life Accommodations
- Faculty Concern Form
Why does the DRC follow the process it does?
The DRC follows best practices outlined by AHEAD (Association on Higher Education and Disability). Accommodations are never intended to:
- reduce academic rigor
- pose a fundamental alteration to the course design
- be unreasonable
