Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Faculty must provide accommodations for a student with a disability if the student presents a letter enumerating identified accommodations from the SDC. Students who do not provide SDC verification should be asked to do so before accommodations are provided. If the faculty member disagrees with the SDC accommodation, or is aware of course-specific factors that have bearing on the accommodation, s/he should consult with either the SDC Disability Specialist who authored the accommodation letter or the SDC Coordinator.

UC Davis Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Policy

In a university setting, academics share institutional governance and are perceived to be powerful. Even if you do not directly supervise anyone, or possess a specific title or position, others in the university community may see you as an authority figure. Therefore, your words and actions may have a different impact than what you intend. Being mindful of this can improve the work and learning environment that you share with others.

To discuss a discrimination or harassment concern, to schedule an educational presentation, or to request materials,  please call (530) 752-9255. You may also contact Christina Sanchez, Harassment & Discrimination Advisor.

Information regarding sexual harassment and sexual violence policy can be found on the Harassment & Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program website.
