Protection For Faculty
If a student reveals to you at anytime that
they have a disability and that they need an accommodation, you
should refer them to KI office. If an accommodation is
appropriate the student will deliver a notice of accommodation
prepared by the Ki Program to student with disabilities. The
accommodation is not retroactive, but becomes only applicable
from that point in time you receive the notification form.
The accommodations outlined in the letter
are determined by the advisor in KI Program based on the
student's specific disability, documentation prepared by a
professional(s) in the appropriate field, and previous education
history. These accommodations have been deemed reasonable and
necessary in order to promote equal access to the college for
students with disabilities.
It is critical that no other
accommodations be offered to the student without contacting the
KI Program to determine if it is deemed appropriate in light of
the functional impact of the particular disability.
Contacting the KI Office will protect you
from acting "on behalf" of the College. The KI Program is the
only approved entity to verify a disability and determine an
accommodation. Any approved changes will be noted in the student
