Faculty & Staff Accessibility Resources

Working together, we can put students first and ensure they all have the best opportunity for success. Our office provides accommodations to UC students. If you are a faculty member seeking accommodations for yourself, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Feel free to browse our site to learn what is expected of students registered with our office, to find out about what accommodations you might see in your classroom, or to learn more about our office and staff. If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 513-792-8625. We look forward to working with you.

UC, Blue Ash 9555 Plainfield Rd., Muntz Hall, Room 112L. You will be provided an Accommodation Form indicating your accommodation needs for the quarter. Please present this form to me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to ensure your accommodation needs are discussed, agreed upon, and provided.

Accommodated Testing

Students inform their instructor and Accessibility Resources of their plan to take their accommodated test in Accessibility Resources Testing Area two days in advance, and for finals seven days in advance.

Accessible Content

We are providing the following instructional steps on creating accessible content. Accessible content is more usable and beneficial to all students.

The National Center on Disability and Access to Education provides helpful resources for creating accessible content.

Adobe Acrobat

When you scan paper documents to PDF form, you're really just taking pictures of those documents. That's great for photos and other printed images, but what if you've got a 200-page document in which you need to find a particular word or phrase? Use Acrobat to recognize the text in that scanned file, making the text searchable and usable.

For instructions on how to use Acrobat to make your documents accessible, head over the the UC Knowledge Base for a step-by-step rundown.

Microsoft Office

For instructions on how to use MIcrosoft Office programs to make your documents accessible, head over the the UC Knowledge Base for a step-by-step rundown.

YouTube

For instructions on how to use Youtube to caption your videos, head over the the UC Knowledge Base for a step-by-step rundown.
