The University of the South is committed to fostering respect for the diversity of the University community and the individual rights of each member of our community. In this spirit, and in accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the University seeks to provide disabled students with the reasonable accommodations needed to ensure equal access to the programs and activities of the University. While the University provides a number of services to support the academic work of all its students (including tutoring and study skills programs), additional accommodations can be made specifically for students with learning disabilities, mobility limitations, certified visual and hearing impairments, and other functional limitations as defined by the ADA via Student Accessibility Services (SAS). Students are expected to discuss the accommodations recommended by Student Accessibility Services (SAS) with their professors at the beginning of each semester.
What is Student Accessibility Services?
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works to ensure that people with disabilities are afforded an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from the programs, services, and activities at the University of the South. As an office, SAS provides accommodations, consultation, and advocacy for qualified students with disabilities. Determination of student eligibility to request reasonable accommodations is made by SAS staff. SAS works collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create an inclusive educational environment for students with disabilities. SAS values relationships with students and seeks to promote pride in the value of one’s disability-related experience and empowers students to self-advocate by providing them with necessary skills and support. Students seeking accommodations should contact Student Accessibility Services by phone at (931) 598-1325 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
