Description of Training Offered

Accommodation Planning

This workshop explains the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) evaluation and intake process that students with disabilities experience in order to obtain academic supports in the classroom. After fully investigating the process from the students' point of view, we analyze the faculty-driven side of facilitating an interactive planning process when a student discloses that they are registered with SAS and have an accommodation letter. This workshop, intended for faculty and staff, provides a full scope of the interactive accommodation process from all perspectives and provides useful strategies and tools for engaging in the disclosure process.

EagleCHECK 

EagleCHECK is an intentional decision an individual or group makes to intervene in a situation that has the potential to be risky, dangerous, harmful, hurtful or an emergency. During this training participants will identify situations that an EagleCHECK may be appropriate, barriers that may prevent them from intervening, and strategies to intervene utilizing the 3 D's: Direct, Delegate and Distract.
