Information for Faculty

As a faculty member at HCC, you play an important role in promoting access for students with disabilities. Students registered with DSIS are encouraged to collaborate with their instructors to ensure that they have the accommodations they need to provide them with equal access to their education.

DSIS serves students with various disabilities including, but not limited to, learning disabilities, visual impairments, hearing impairments, physical impairments, psychological disabilities, and other health-related disabilities. Accommodations provided to students are determined on an individual basis.

The information on the DSIS website is intended to provide faculty with more in-depth information concerning working with DSIS and with students with disabilities. DSIS staff members are also available to faculty and staff for consultation and presentations on disability related topics. For questions regarding a specific student's accommodations, please contact the DSIS office.
