Faculty are strongly encouraged to include the NIU Accessibility Statement for Syllabi on all syllabi. Students have the right to request disability-related accommodations whether or not this statement is on your syllabus.
Respect the right of students with disabilities to maintain privacy regarding their disability. Requiring a student to disclose a disability is against the law. If you have questions about a student's accommodations, contact the DRC.
Closed captions - In Provost-funded classrooms: if a video/DVD/media has closed captions, turn on captioning. If you need help turning on captions, use the phone in the classroom to call technical support. If you are in a classroom that is not Provost-funded, contact technical support for the building or department.
