Peer Notetakers

Some students need peer note takers due to the functional limitations of their disability. Your involvement recruitment of a classmate as a note taker is crucial to this accommodation. Please be in communication with Accessibility Services if you are having difficulty obtaining a student note taker. Not providing this accommodation is not an option. After an eligible student has submitted a note taker request to Accessibility Services, we will contact the professor and ask that they make a class announcement requesting a volunteer.
