Access to Educational Opportunities
Academic Access/Nondiscrimination Policy
Access to Educational Opportunities Consistent with Indiana University’s Equal Opportunity Policy, the Indiana University School of Education affirms and conducts all aspects of its teaching, scholarship, service activities, field experience, student teaching, and educational placement without discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, socioeconomic status, marital status, national or ethnic origin, age, religion/creed, disability, or political or sexual orientation.
Students who believe that any of their rights have been violated should follow the guidelines established in the School of Education student grievance and appeals procedures.
Students with Disabilities Students with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, speech impairments, or other disabilities that may affect their ability to fulfill a requirement of the school should contact Disability Services for Students, Franklin Hall 006 at Bloomington, (812) 855-7578, prior to registering. Requirements will not be waived for students with disabilities; however, some modifications may be made within specific courses. Students seeking such modifications should do so early in their academic career to ensure timely progress to degree completion.
Federal laws that govern the provision of accommodations and assistance to students with disabilities at the college level are quite different from those that apply to students in high school. College students with disabilities and their parents should become familiar with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 to better understand what their rights and responsibilities are as a disabled college student.
