SENSITIVITY & INCLUSION

At IE University, it’s important to us that all of our team members stay up to speed on all things inclusivity and belonging. To that end, we’ve created a free sensitivity training course for faculty and staff, available here:

We encourage you to complete our tutorial Accessibility, Inclusion, and Belonging: Disabilities and Diversity.

RESOURCES FOR EDUCATORS

INTERNAL COMMUNICATION

How will faculty members know when they have a student with a disability?

  • Students will submit a request for accommodations through the Student Portal.
  • The Special Educational Needs (SEN) office will review the request, then issue a resolution to the student’s academic office.
  • The academic office will then email the relevant professors to notify them of the resolution and how they should make the appropriate accommodations.

ACCESSIBILITY IN THE SYLLABUS

Our stance on accessibility should be clear from day one. The best way to do so is by:

  • Including a statement on accessibility and disability on the syllabus
  • Clearly explaining the statement during the in-class syllabus review
  • Ensuring that the syllabus itself abides by relevant accessibility standards

MAKING CONTENT ACCESSIBLE

At IE University, we believe it’s key to make content as accessible as possible – visually, linguistically, technically, and beyond. 

We recommend this thorough guide to creating accessible digital content.
