Creating inclusive environments for disabled students also means recognizing and supporting disabled faculty and staff on campus. In fact, without recruitment and retention of disabled faculty, it may be hard to argue that the goals of inclusion have been truly met in any university environment.

This document provides resources for disabled faculty members and those responsible for facilitating accommodations (typically department chairs and deans). This is a resource document; policy on disability accommodation is set by the University of Colorado.
