Faculty and Staff Resources

Sample Syllabus Statement:

" VMI abides by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 which mandate reasonable accommodations are provided for all cadets with documented disabilities. If you have a registered disability and may require some type of instructional and/or examination accommodations, please contact me early in the semester so that I can provide or facilitate provision of accommodations you may need. If you have not already done so, you will need to register with the Office of Disabilities Services, the designated office on Post to provide services for cadets with disabilities. The office is located on the 2nd floor of the VMI Health Center. Please call or stop by the office of LTC Jones, Director of Disabilities Services, for more information, 464-7667 or jonessl10@vmi.edu.”

Faculty Presentations 

Most faculty and staff are aware of services provided by the Office of Disabilities Services (ODS); however, many are uncertain about the process cadets must go through to get registered with ODS, what documentation he/she must provide to be eligible for services, and the legislation which outlines the rights and responsibilities of cadets receiving services. 

If you would like to schedule an individual or departmental meeting to learn more about ODS policies and procedures and/or would like to know more about learning disabilities in general, please contact LTC Jones (jonessl10@vmi.edu; 464-7667).
