There are academic support workshops that are scheduled in the evenings throughout the term. Feel free to spread the word to students, advisees, residents, etc! You can find the current schedule here .
In addition to the workshops, we would be happy to present to your class on a range of topics. We can tailor the content to fit your needs, but note-taking, learning style, time management, organization, and study strategies are some examples. If you are interested in scheduling a classroom presentation contact Nate Payovich, Academic Support Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a part of our tutoring program, we require that tutors obtain the signature of a faculty member that can attest to their ability to tutor a particular course. When we receive a request for a class that does not have any registered tutors we will also contact faculty members asking for recommendations. If you would like to recommend a tutor for a class, you can contact Nate Payovich at email@example.com. (In order to expedite the process we can accept an email as verification of a student's ability to tutor!)
If you have questions or suggestions regarding career services at Alma College, please email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshops & Classroom Presentations
Workshops on career topics are scheduled regularly - see schedule for 2011-2012 events. Any of these workshops can be presented during a classroom period if you choose, and we are willing to create additional presentations to meet your needs as well.
FOCUS is a career interest assessment tool that you may wish to use with your advisees or classes. This program includes a "What Can I Do With a Major In" section.
Classroom accommodations are individually determined based on discussions between the student and the Disability Services Coordinator, a review of the documentation, and input from faculty members. Faculty input is critical in developing accommodations that are appropriate and effective for each particular class. Faculty members are encouraged to contact the Disability Services Coordinator (even after receiving a letter) with questions, conflicts, or suggestions. Often the instructor will have a suggestion for an accommodation that will better suit the student in his/her class.
The Academic and Career Planning office operates a test proctoring service primarily for students with disabilities. We have four testing rooms that students may reserve if they are approved for this accommodation and the ACP office has instructions from the faculty member giving the test.
NOTE: If there is a conflict, ACP can also proctor tests for students without disabilities as long as there are testing rooms available. Students must still reserve a room and we will still need instructions from the faculty member. If you have questions, contact the Disability Services Coordinator at email@example.com.
Syllabus Statement on Disability
Faculty members are encouraged to include a statement on disability in the syllabus at the beginning of the term. A statement makes it clear that the instructor is open to discussing this topic and it can help students feel more comfortable communicating their needs. The following statement is appropriate for inclusion:
- Any student who requires accommodation(s) to complete the requirements of this course because of a disability is invited to contact me privately to discuss your needs. You can also contact the Disability Services Coordinator in the Academic and Career Planning office to arrange for reasonable classroom accommodations.
