The decision to disclose disability-related information by any student, is personal and confidential.
It is important not to ask students for their disability diagnosis.
If students wish to disclose, they will do so on their own.
A student should never be asked to discuss anything related to their academic accommodations in the presence of others, or in a classroom where other students can clearly overhear the conversation.
It is important that no reference be made to a student being registered with SAS in the presence of others or in a classroom where other students can clearly overhear the conversation.
Any and all discussions related to academic accommodations with any student, should always take place in your office during office hours, or by appointment where conversations can remain confidential.
Discussion with faculty colleagues regarding any student or a student’s accommodations should not be undertaken.
It is important, and perhaps necessary in some or most situations, to share student accommodation information with TAs. Particularly where a TA is leading a tutorial group or grading coursework, which may be associated with accommodations.
Any questions related to any student regarding academic accommodations or disability-related matters should always be directed to SAS.
