educational opportunity, it is strongly committed to the creation of a
campus environment, free of discrimination and bias in matters affecting

This Faculty Guide has been published to help you learn more about working
with students who have disabilities, including their responsibility to
communicate with you their special requirements. It will also direct you to

disabilities face, we can better meet their educational needs, and ensure
they have every opportunity to learn and benefit from the rich academic
environment of Georgia Southern.
