Information for Faculty and Staff

In an effort to support our students and their quest for academic success we are very excited to collaborate with you to ensure our students maximize all of their gifts and talents.  In addition, we pride ourselves in creating an inclusive environment to celebrate the diversity of NJIT.

Each student has different learning styles and needs in the classroom, in meetings and during extra-curricular activities.  To that end, we support and appreciate your efforts in providing supplemental lecture handouts, organizing syllabi to ensure all information is clear and utilizing an all sensory approach for presentations. 

Please include a statement regarding receiving assistance from Disability Support Services (DSS) similar to the one below on each of your syllabi that states:

If you are in need of accommodations due to a disability please contact Chantonette Lyles, Associate Director of Disability Support Services, Fenster Hall Room 260 to discuss your specific needs.  A Letter of Accommodation Eligibility from the Disability Support Services office authorizing your accommodations will be required.

It is our hope that The Working with Students with Disabilities information guide will assist you while teaching, advising and mentoring students with disabilities.  If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our office.
